With over 40,000 students, NYU's campus buildings are spread throughout New York City, from midtown Manhattan to the heart of Greenwich Village, and even downtown Brooklyn. One of the United State's most creative and energetic cities, New York City's historic neighborhoods have attracted generations of writers, musicians, artists, and intellectuals.
Beyond the the campus, New York City becomes an extension of the University's campus. With institutes and centers on the Upper East Side and academic buildings down in the Financial District, getting from place to place at NYU requires a little assistance.
Luckily, there are a lot of options available to get around New York City. NYU Transportation services run between the Washington Square campus and NYU residence halls. The MTA runs the subway, train and bus systems that will get you where you need to go.
If all else fails, head over to Broadway to catch a cab downtown (yellow cabs only, please) or over to Sixth Avenue to catch one going uptown.
NYU has a University box office that is dedicated to serving the needs of students. See information about Ticket Central on their Web site www.nyu.edu/ticketcentral.
For additional information for theatre, sporting events, and other performances, call the following:

There are limited lodging options in the immediate NYU area, so you may want to consider staying further uptown, or even outside of the city.
The NYU Department of Public Safety manages campus transportation services between the Washington Square campus and student residence halls and apartment buildings that are located beyond walking distance. Service is also provided between the Washington Square campus and the Schools of Medicine & Dentistry.
