We get it; we’re parents too. But don’t worry, Mom and Dad: Your son or daughter will be in great hands at NYU. And it all starts in the classroom. We’re the largest independent research university in the United States, featuring world-class academics, faculty, and resources. Our two New York City campuses — Greenwich Village and Downtown Brooklyn — are located in culturally diverse, safe, and exciting neighborhoods. Meanwhile, our campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai are equally inspiring. They offer their own unique cultural and educational experiences, preparing students to succeed and lead in an increasingly interconnected world.

In addition, parents, you can be rest assured that while a rich collegiate life is important at NYU, so is our students’ health and well-being — something we take very seriously.


With more than 230 academic programs that span the arts, humanities, business, and the sciences, NYU has something to satisfy just about any calling. And while we’re large in offerings, we’re close-knit in how we educate, as many of our departments collaborate to ensure our students receive a well-rounded education across multiple disciplines. In addition, since we’re located in three of the world’s great business centers, our students have an amazing wealth of internship and other hands-on learning opportunities that other students can only dream about.
