Campus Life

With campuses in the Big Apple, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, it goes without saying that NYU has A LOT going on. From on-campus activities like student clubs, varsity and intramural athletics, and annual events (Strawberry Festival is a can’t miss), to an endless array of cultural, entertainment, and sporting events found throughout the city, our students don’t know the meaning of “down time.”

New York

NYU in New York City

We have two campuses in our beloved home city: Greenwich Village (main campus) and Downtown Brooklyn (NYU Tandon School of Engineering). Students have their choice of 23 residence halls, with four years of housing guaranteed to all entering freshman. Housing, however, is limited for transfer students. In addition, your son or daughter won’t go hungry at NYU, as we have 13 different eateries on campus, with something for any palate or nutritional requirement. And if they can’t find something to eat on campus, we hear New York City has some pretty good food.

Abu Dhabi

NYU Abu Dhabi

Situated on Saadiyat Island (yes, the beach is nearby) in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, NYU Abu Dhabi draws students from around the world who want a strong liberal arts education from a world-class research institution. Students are exposed to a wide-array of cultures — especially those who live in the residence halls — giving them a diverse learning experience in a globally emerging city.

Shanghai

NYU Shanghai

Our campus in China is located in the heart of Shanghai, one of Asia’s cultural and financial capitals. All freshman, sophomore, and Study Away students are required to live in the Green Center Residence Hall. Residence life, however, includes activities that promote appreciation for different cultures, as well as a sense of community both on- and off-campus. Tip: Make sure you visit your student during the Dumpling Festival. You won’t leave disappointed or hungry.
