Collage of student life photos, "get involved" on the side, with NYU Center for Student Life

The Mission of the Center for Student Life is to enhance the NYU experience through programs and services that create intentional student engagement. We cultivate opportunities which support new student transition, empower leadership development, and foster inclusive community building. We exist to help our students discover their purpose at NYU and beyond.

Student Life Starts Here

The Center for Student Life helps NYU students navigate the university. We sponsor University-wide clubs and programs that provide social and leadership opportunities for all students — throughout their time at NYU. We serve as a community and information hub for groups including commuter, transfer, international, and military and veteran students. We support fraternities and sororities, curate service experiences, and host a variety of opportunities to get involved. Check out our space.

The Center for Student Life also produces events throughout the year, such as NYU Welcome during orientation, Club Fest twice a year, Violet 100, and Strawberry Fest in the spring semester, and Senior Week leading up to graduation.

Don't miss out on fun ways to get involved, meet people who are just like you, or try something outside of your comfort zone.

Center for Student Life Global Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, Equity, and Access (GIDBEA) Value Statement

The Center for Student Life is rooted in the pursuit of global inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and access (GIDBEA) across the NYU community. We are committed to learning, growing, and consistently educating ourselves. We advocate for our students and foster a culture of solidarity. We endeavor to be based in action to challenge systemic oppression.


In the Summer of 2020, the Center for Student Life, along with the entire NYU community and the world was grieving the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. The CSL staff engaged in many conversations about how we can better support our Black students and colleagues and hold ourselves accountable to these goals, which we ultimately released this statement. We understand a lot has changed in the years since then, but our commitment to combating systemic injustices has not and neither has our commitment to our Black students and colleagues. While the action needed and the circumstances may be different than they were, this document serves as an important reminder to ourselves and all of you of that time and the necessary work we must continue to do each day.
