NYU Academic Center in Paris
NYU Paris is now located in the Latin Quarter, the thriving historic and intellectual heart of Paris. Students will have the opportunity to benefit from the numerous cultural, artistic, and academic institutions of this wonderful neighborhood, as well as to get to know the city through faculty-led visits and walking tours. There you will take classes, attend lectures, and study in the library. You are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop; however it is not mandatory as the center is equipped with computer labs. Various student lounges provide places to meet up with friends or interact with NYU Paris staff, including the director, associate directors, housing coordinator, student life staff, librarians, and faculty—all of whom advise you during your stay in Paris and support your adventures in France.
NYU Paris also plans a comprehensive calendar of events that regularly features outings to museums, the opera, and the theatre, as well as excursions outside of Paris. At the center itself, you can go to film screenings and conferences on current affairs with scholars, writers, artists, and politicians. Also planned are social events that bring you together with French students, food tastings, and walking tours that take you "off the beaten track" in your exploration of Paris.
NYU Paris is fully equipped with desktop computer stations and laser printers. The wifi connection is accessible throughout the facilities, including of course, the Library.
The NYU Paris library contains materials in French, as well as some English-language books, on literature, art history, cinema, fashion, literary theory, and French and European history, among others. In addition, the library has both French and English-language periodicals (Le Monde, The New Yorker, Art Press, etc.), an extensive film collection (DVDs in both French and English), and other resources that may help you in your coursework and outside research.
