Located in Labone, one of the most beautiful residential areas of Accra, the NYU Academic Center is only a few minutes walking distance from your residence and is where the administrative offices and classrooms are located. All of your NYU classes will be held there. The center is equipped with a small library and a computer lab. You can bring your laptop and connect via Ethernet or a wireless network or use the computers at the lab to communicate with relatives and friends back home. Outside of the center, you'll have access to exceptional academic and cocurricular resources in Accra and the surrounding area, including the University of Ghana-Legon Balme Library with its rare African studies book collection, the W. E. B. Du Bois Memorial Centre for Pan-African Culture, and the National Museum, to name a few.
The administrative staff at the center will advise you during your stay, and the full-time student affairs staff will help you navigate the city and its services, travel with you, and introduce you to local customs and the rhythms of daily life. The NYU Accra staff organizes a number of activities to help you become an active part of the community and experience Ghanaian life in interesting, fun, and profound ways. A schedule of events is posted at the center to keep you up to date with all planned activities and additional travel opportunities.
