Visit NYU Because Seeing is Believing

Visit NYU

New York City: Two Locations, One Great 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:

Events in Your City

Every year, NYU goes on a world tour. We visit dozens of cities so students like you can learn more about what our three campuses have to offer.

Open House

Every fall we host open houses for prospective students so they can meet with faculty, undergraduate admissions staff, financial aid officials, and current students. Tours of first-year residence halls are also available. This year, our open houses will take place on September 23-24 and October 14-15. We'll also host Diversity Open House on November 11.
