Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was a Greenwich Village resident and frequent speaker at NYU. She lived at 29 Washington Square West from 1942 to 1949 and on more than one occasion participated in NYU events.
In addition to program and campuses abroad, NYU has established parallel research institutes at Washington Square with academic foci on particular countries or regions. The international houses at NYU serve as academic forums supporting faculty research intersecting with particular geographic areas. The international houses typically sponsor academic conferences and colloquia, host visiting international scholars and prominent guest lecturers, and coordinate activities across related programs and institutes at NYU. Equally important, the international houses reinforce faculty and student engagement in the NYU's programs abroad and frequently offer joint programming with the NYU campuses abroad.
