Living History

Famed for its crafts, music, and the warmth of its people, contemporary Ghana is a bridge between its ancient heritage and the new global community. Through your academic courses and extracurricular adventures, you'll experience the diversity and complexity of a country whose history has transformed both Africa and the world. 

Students who study in Accra get to experience history in action as they live among and learn about the changing culture of Ghana.

Get to Know Your Neighborhood

Located in Labone, one of the most beautiful residential areas of Accra, the NYU Center in Ghana 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.
