Visit NYU

New York City

There’s no better way to get the inside scoop on what it’s like to be part of the NYU community than hearing straight from the horse’s mouth. Or is that the bobcat’s mouth? Either way, come visit us and learn firsthand from current students why there’s nothing like NYU.

At all of our events, we talk about the full NYU global community, which includes our degree-granting campuses in New York City, Abu Dhabi and Shanghai. This helps set the stage for where you might find your fit globally, academically, and personally. 

Here are all the ways you can visit campus:

NYU's Commitment to Accessibility: We aim to have a community accessible to everyone. Should you or a member of your family require accessibility arrangements please contact NYU's Moses Center for Students with Disabilities at least 2 weeks prior to your visit. 

Information Sessions and Tours

Just about any day of the week, you (and up to two additional guests) can visit one of our two New York City locations to meet with undergraduate admissions officers and take a tour led by a current student. Sessions take about two hours. Spots fill up fast, so please register in advance.
