Naming Opportunities

New York University offers a number of naming opportunities that provide a special way for you to leave a lasting mark on the University. Whether you choose to put your name or the name of someone special on a building, a classroom, or a chair in a theatre, there are a number of ways to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity.

Facilities and Quality of Life for Students

Gifts can name specific capital projects or classrooms, laboratories, seminar and study rooms, theatres and performance spaces, library wings, building lobbies, student lounges, or residence halls. Gifts that enhance the quality and vitality of the University as a whole include athletics and fitness facilities, dining areas, space for student clubs and activities, study and learning centers that provide computers and networking access, conference rooms, and art galleries.

Teaching and the Academy

Named academic posts honor distinguished faculty members and at the same time help the University attract scholars and teachers of the highest caliber. Available to be named are department chairmanships, professorships, junior faculty positions, lectureships, research fellowships, library curatorships, and visiting scholar appointments. To advance studies in a given field, a gift can name an institute, academic department, research center, library book collection, symposium or conference, public affairs program, or faculty or student exchange program.

Scholarships and Student Assistance

Named scholarship funds can open many avenues for students: they can make possible study abroad, reward a student of great ability, or enable someone with financial need to pursue a chosen course of study. They also help the University attract and retain the nation's most talented students. Named undergraduate scholarships, fellowships for graduate students, internship programs, merit scholarships, and loan funds can be designated for a field of study of particular interest to the donor.
