University Policy Database

As a central repository for existing, new and revised policies and guidelines, the NYU Policy Database serves to standardize policy format, eliminate redundancies, improve organization, accessibility, search and navigation functions.

The policies are organized in categories as noted in the menus below. Some policies may be listed in multiple categories. University policies, procedures and guidelines are retained and maintained in this database to guide and inform the University community, including faculty, staff, administration and students.  

This database does not contain an exhaustive list of university policies. For more information, or assistance in locating a policy, please call the Office of Compliance and Risk Management at 212-998-2265, or by email at
