NYU Student Government

The Student Senators Council (SSC) is here to improve New York University (NYU). We advocate for and represent students on new initiatives, working to solve problems at the University.


We're Here For You

Check out the faces of your student representatives who advocate for you on university-wide issues ranging from academic policy to student health.  

What is the SSC?

The Student Senators Council (SSC) is the overarching student government at NYU. We are constantly working with other students, organizations, faculty, and administrators at NYU to create the best university experience. We have a large team of Student Senators, Council Presidents, Committee Chairs and Students that help us advocate on behalf of students; create and further student-focused agendas; and lead new initiatives at the university.

Chair, Student Senators Council

Dear Classmates,

On behalf of NYU's student government, I would like to welcome you to the Student Senators Council's (SSC) website. We are tasked with the responsibility of making each student's voice heard on the University Senate and around NYU. From changing the hours of your favorite dining hall, to helping make NYU more sustainable, the SSC is here for each and every one of you. Feel free to reach out to us at any time with concerns or problems you may face here at the university, or give us your thoughts on the issues we are working on. We are here to help.
