Due to the current COVID-19 quarantine situation, other NYU students and I believe that it would be very helpful for us if the NYU facilities reduce the summer tuition by half other than just disregarding the housing fee. During the summer session, students will not have the benefits that come from in-person interaction and collaboration with professors and classmates, which will be detrimental to students' education by limiting the ability to facilitate active discussions and seek clarifications. 

The closing of campuses prevents students from using and accessing many university facilities.  Libraries, classrooms, and other facilities that were demanded by students will greatly decrease in use, which should lead to a decrease in costs associated with the use and maintenance of these spaces. Moreover, if students cannot make use of what they are paying, having to pay almost $7000 for every 4 credits seems a bit unreasonable.

Lastly, many students that are enrolled for summer classes are in different time zones, which means we will have to adjust our schedule once again. NYU students have already spent significant time and effort to adapt to an entirely new, difficult course system. Our college experience has become basically nonexistence and draining this semester. Me and the others believe that it is a bit unfair not to receive more compensation.
