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.
2 Metro Tech Center, 1st Floor, Card Center (8am to 5:30pm)
6 Metro Tech, Rogers Hall, 1st Floor, Jasper Dining (8:30-3:00pm)
Join other members of the NYU family for a snack or light meal and take a pic at

At 7:00pm, students (only) will meet on their floor with Residential Life staff who will talk about living on campus, introduce them to fellow community members, and answer any questions.
The day ends for parents at the close of the Welcome Day events or when students in residence report to their mandatory residence hall meeting at 7:00pm. This is usually the best time to say good-bye so that students can begin meeting other residents and preparing for Orientation and Welcome Week which begins Monday morning. There are no programs beyond this day for parents until Parents Day in October.
