The main administrative offices of NYU Shanghai are located on the campus of East China Normal University, one of the country’s premier institutions of higher learning, located to the northwest of the city center. The sprawling, green campus hosts many facilities such as a large library, classroom and administrative buildings, dormitories, extensive playing fields, and various small shops and restaurants. There you’ll find the director and student activities and housing staff, a computer lab and lounge for studying and checking email as well as a ping-pong table where students hold frequent tournaments.
Mandarin language courses also meet mornings in classrooms on campus and are taught by ECNU professors who are experts in teaching Chinese as a second language. A shuttle bus runs throughout the day to transport you to all your content courses which meet at the NYU Shanghai downtown center, conveniently located near Zhongshan Park and many nearby restaurants, shops and a metro station. Modern classrooms, a computer lab and meeting rooms are available at the downtown center which is staffed by an NYU Shanghai administrator. The centralized nature and small size of the NYU Shanghai program also provides an amazing community environment for you as a student.
