Each fall, NYU hosts NYU Welcome Day for new undergraduate students and their family members. Organized around residence hall move-in times, parents and students are invited to stop by for refreshments, information, and to meet representatives from various NYU departments. It's a great place to meet other parents and students, take a break, get a bite, and ask questions. Note that there are no programs for parents beyond this day unless otherwise indicated. Students in residence will meet for floor meetings at 7:00 pm which is a good time to say goodbyes.
The following are anticipated programs, times and locations for the day. The most current information will be available upon arrival to campus and on the NYU Mobile App on August 13th.
Join other members of the NYU family for a snack or light meal.
