The Blue Building

Academic Center

NYU Prague is in the heart of the city on Malé Náměstí (the Small Square), steps away from the famous Old Town Square.  Take a short walk and you can find yourself on Wenceslas Square (the site of Prague's Velvet Revolution), the Jewish Quarter (with its famed 15th-century cemetery) or Charles Bridge.

Our campus consists of two buildings: the Blue Building, a 15th-century building with painted wooden Renaissance ceilings and arched entryways, and the elegant Richter Palace (Richtruv dum) with its beautiful Baroque facade.  Our English-language library boasts a large collection focused on Central Europe.   

The City as a Classroom

The magical city of Prague is medieval yet modern, and its museums, galleries, castles, synagogues, and churches provide unparalleled opportunities to supplement classroom study.   Many of Prague’s most significant historical sites are within walking distance of the NYU campus, and our small classes allow professors to take them there.

Academic Advisement

NYU Prague staff is available for individual consultation throughout the semester, and students can discuss course work with their professors during office hours.  Students should consult with their advisers on their home campuses about requirements for their major or to find out if they can take an internship for credit.
