Located near Washington Square Park in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village, NYU New York is the cornerstone of the Global Network University. We hope that all our students spend at least a semester here, and hope their families have the chance to visit as well.

New York City can be a little confusing and listing all the hotels in the city when there are far more useful online tools that do so wouldn't be helping you out at all. Since there are so many options available on where to stay and you could live in any of the five boroughs, recommending hotels isn't an option.

However, we have NYU Traveler available to help you pick hotels that give NYU-related discounts to NYU community members. 

No matter where you stay, we hope you enjoy your visit to New York University and take advantage of the wonderful resources the City has to offer.

We can also give you an idea of where to look when you're looking at hotels.  Here's a brief overview:

Greenwich Village

Falls Between These Streets: 14th Street in the north, down to Houston Street

Includes These Neighborhoods: the West Village and the East Village

This is where we are and staying here might be expensive, but getting to and from freshmen dorms is easy.

We say "Howston", not "Hewston" just so you know.

Looking Downtown in Manhattan

Lower Manhattan

Falls Between These Streets:  Houston Street to the north and the bottom of Manhattan in the south.

Neighborhoods include: SoHo, Little Italy, Lower East Side, Chinatown, TriBeCa, Financial District, and Battery Park City.

Hotels in these areas will require a long walk or a subway ride to get to the Washington Square area, and if you're coming from the Lower East Side pay special close attention to where those trains are.  Some of them are going to be a long way from your hotel.

Looking Uptown in Manhattan

14th Street to 42th Street

Chelsea,  Union Square, Garment District, Murray Hill, Flatiron District


42nd Street to 59th Street / Midtown

Midtown and the bottom of Central Park


Upper West or Upper East Side

you're gonna need to take a train downtown, it will take you about 30-40 minutes.
