The NYU Center is centrally located near the many famous colleges of the University of London, including the London School of Economics, University College London, King's College, and the School of Oriental and African Studies. NYU London students have associate membership of University College London's Student's Union, and are able to participate in many of its social events, clubs, and sports, as well as being eligible to use the facilities at the nearby Student Central venue.
