Events & Activities

Precollege hosts a wide number of social events and activities for both Residential and Non-Residential students. These events create a sense of community and help students get to know one another while exploring the city around them. Participation in activities is optional but highly encouraged.

Students are notified of upcoming events via email and are encouraged to RSVP, as space may be limited. Event costs are covered by the program fee, not including transportation to and from campus or any additional personal expense, such as souvenirs or food.

Floor Communities

For students who choose to live on campus, your residence hall floor will have its own team of Program Assistants (PAs) made up of current NYU students who will be your main resource and guide during the program.

Non-residential students will also be assigned to a floor and will have the opportunity to participate in hall and floor events along with all other Precollege students.

PAs will host events for your floor, and your floor community will be an important part of your college experience.
