Waiving your housing deposit?

I come from a really low income family, and I already emailed housing to see if it was possible to waive my housing deposit. Before the snarky people come on, i was able to receive a very good scholarship from NYU, so I’m not worried about cost at all. I just want to know if any of you have been able to waive the housing deposit or if it is even possible?

NYU does waive the housing deposit for their HEOP students. Though NYU has a reputation for being stingy so I wouldn’t count on it, but you never know i guess.
