Student living at NYU is a unique experience of its own. Students can live in residential housing near the Washington Square campus—soaking in the vibrant Greenwich Village neighborhood—or they can live off campus in one of the five boroughs and beyond. With either option, students aren’t just residents of a college campus; they are citizens, users and a vital aspect of one of the world’s largest, diverse, most interesting cities.
As members of a metropolitan community, NYU students have access to the University’s greatest resource: New York City itself. They use the city to launch a great career. Students intern for the world’s most influential companies, biggest media outlets and largest organizations. They network with some of the most powerful people in the city, the country and the globe. Students also get involved in the community, volunteering or working for one of the city’s many charities or even starting community service organizations of their own. That’s just one example of how students take leadership positions that prepare them for what lies ahead after college.
