Working at NYU/NYC

Living and Working at NYU/NYC

NYU is building a new paradigm in higher education, which we call the Global Network University. Designed to draw talented, creative students, scholars, and teachers from around the world, our global network enables people to circulate freely without leaving NYU’s intellectual community and resources.

NYC is in itself a global microcosm with an estimated 800 languages spoken in the city and residents representing over 200 countries. You can spend your morning in Chinatown, your afternoon in Little Italy and your evening in Spanish Harlem and see many different cultures in a single day. The city is definitely a tourism hot spot with over 40 million people visiting annually to explore the plethora of restaurants, galleries, museums, theaters, sporting events and shopping destinations New York has to offer. We are fortunate to live in a dynamic city that offers us many opportunities not only for our students but also for the professionals that work here. In New York, there really is something for everyone.

Working with Students

Our students are highly talented, motivated, and driven in the work that they do in and outside of the classroom. As a professional staff member, you work closely with student leaders and student staff to make NYU and NYC a home away from home for residents through programming, collaboration and innovative practices.

The Inter-Residence Hall Council (IRHC) is an award-winning group that provides some amazing experiences for our students - and Housie, their mascot, is a friendly face known throughout campus. Some programs that they are known for are Ultra Violet Live (UVL), Flurry, and Elegance to name a few. The Torch Chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) strives to recognize the amazing work that is being done in the NYU community. Our student staff enhances the live-on experience through their direct interactions with students on a daily basis.

With IRHC, NRHH, and the efforts of our student staff, NYU residents are supported and engaged to be the best that they can be.
