Open House

Learn Why NYU is the School for You

Every fall, we invite prospective students and their families to join us for NYU Open House, a series of events tailored to your academic interests. Throughout the day, you’ll have the chance to meet with faculty, admissions staff, current students, and financial aid representatives. You can also take a campus tour and visit four NYU first-year residence halls, and even start building your NYU gear collection by shopping at the University bookstore.

What's the Difference Between the October Open House and the November Pathways Open House?

At our October Open House, you will have the opportunity to attend an in-depth academic presentation from the undergraduate school or college at NYU that you are most interested in. Following this presentation, you can choose to drop in on a campus tour, financial aid session, and a variety of other programming tailored for prospective students. 

Our November Pathways Open House is designed for students who are looking for a broad overview of NYU's academic offerings (based on your academic interests), structure, and the application process in general. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about the diverse student body on campus and the many pathways you can take to access academic and career success. At our Pathways Open House we will offer an admission and financial aid session in both English and Spanish.
