About the tour

  • Tours are designed for students of all NYU graduate and professional programs as a general introduction to our Washington Square campus and its facilities.
  • This tour does not focus on any one school or program. If you wish to visit a specific graduate or professional school in order to ask academic and admissions questions that the tour will not cover, we recommend that you connect with them ahead of time - those separate offices' availability will vary.
  • This tour is not designed for undergraduate prospective students.

Washington Square Park Arch

The tour helped me get a better idea of what my future might look like as an NYU student. I enjoyed visiting the buildings, getting an overview of graduate student life, and learning some history of the campus...I am an accepted student and the tour helped me decide that NYU is where I want to commit to.

It was very informative. The tour guide was super detailed to the point where any question we could’ve possibly had was answered before I even thought about it. I enjoyed it very much and if I could I’d do it again!

Visiting different schools gave me a good idea of not only the school I plan to study in but also the different courses/activities at other schools that could complement my program. The insight on different centers was also helpful for understanding the opportunities on campus. It was great that the the Campus tour was conducted by the NYU students. That helped me gain an understanding about the student life at NYU.
