Group Tours

Get to Know New York

We can't wait to welcome your group to NYU! But before you reserve your tour, please read the important information below so you know what qualifies as a group tour and when we can accommodate group tour requests.

Should I request a group tour?

Organizations (e.g. high schools) who wish to bring a group of over 15 students to visit NYU should complete our form to request a group tour, and we will do our best to accommodate your request based on our availability. 

For information about visits for 5th-8th grade students, please contact Jimmy Suarez at

What is included in a group tour?

A Student Ambassador will lead your group in an hour-long campus tour of NYU facilities including the library, a classroom building, the student center, and a residence hall lobby (room tours are not available). Chaperones must accompany students on the tour.

When are group tours available?

Group tours are generally available when NYU classes are in session. We do not conduct group tours during final exam periods, University Holidays, or academic breaks. We cannot offer group tours in July or August.

Tours are available in the Fall 2017 Semester (beginning Monday, September 18) Monday through Friday at 10:30 a.m. and in the Spring 2018 Semester (beginning Monday, February 5) on most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. during the months of February and March. Select dates will be available in May.

For the 2017-2018 school year, group tours will NOT be available on the following dates:

  • October 9
  • November 1-3

  • December 18-February 4
  • February 19

When should I request a tour?

Tours must be requested at least three weeks in advance by email. We do our best to accommodate all groups that wish to visit but, due to the high volume of requests, we cannot guarantee a tour for all groups.

When will my tour be confirmed?

You will receive a response to your request via email within seven business days. Once you receive an email back from our office, you must send the signed confirmation form back at least two weeks before your tour.

How should I get to campus?

Once your request is received, you will receive a confirmation from our office with all the details of your tour. Tours generally depart from the Jeffrey S. Gould Welcome Center located at 27 West 4th Street, NY, NY 10012. We strongly encourage guests to utilize public transportation when visiting.

Can we eat on campus?

NYU Dining Halls cannot accommodate large tour groups. However, there are many restaurants around Washington Square that can typically accommodate large groups. Check out this map of places to eat in the area.
