Welcome Week

Things To Do

Get Your NYUCard (Student ID)

Grab a Bite and Take Break

Stop by the Kimmel Market place on the 3rd floor for a light continental breakfast or lunch and take a break between moving-in, running errands, and all the other things to do!

Visit the Information Fair

Located in the Eisner and Lubin Auditorium on the 4th floor, meet with representatives from NYU offices and organizations. Departments participating are located on the right side of this page.  Addtionally, new students can pick-up their free NYU t-shirt at the Student Resource Center's Welcome Week table. T-shirts will also be available during Welcome Week at the top of the Kimmel Center’s grand staircase.

Attend the "For Parents Only" Presentation

Parents (only) of new undergraduates are invited to a 45 minute Welcome to the University that will include an overview of the coming weeks for new students, tips for what to expect during your student’s first year, and information about how parents can best access university offices and resources. This optional program will be offered throughout the day on a first-come-first-served basis in the Skirball Center for Performing Arts, 566 LaGuardia Place (east side of the Kimmel Center).     9:30am | 11am | 12:30pm | 2pm | 3:30pm | 5pm
