Visit Us

The best way to experience NYU is to visit campus.

NYU's New York campus is centered in two locations: the heart of New York City's famed Greenwich Village, and the School of Engineering in Downtown Brooklyn, one of the fastest growing hubs of science and technology in the nation.

Our campus visit program lasts approximately two hours, and features an admissions officer-led information session, followed by a student-led campus tour. We welcome students, families, and guests to join us. Please reserve your session in advance. Most sessions begin at the NYU Welcome Center.
