In the midst of New York City, NYU students are truly part of the tempo and excitement of Greenwich Village and beyond. NYU is committed to safety, wellness education, and outstanding health care as part of the University community.
To maintain the health and well-being of the student body, students in degree-granting programs are required to maintain health insurance. Many are enrolled automatically in a NYU-sponsored student health insurance plan as a part of the University's registration process. Students may also opt to maintain their own health insurance and waive the NYU Plan, and they have the option of enrolling in Stu-Dent, the student dental plan. The Student Health Center offers routine and walk-in Primary Care and Women's Health Services at either no cost or very reduced cost to all matriculated students. In addition, Wellness, Short-term Counseling (talk therapy) and Crisis services are free of charge.
