An exciting and challenging part of the study abroad experience is daily life outside the academic realm. Students are encouraged to integrate into the local community, explore their interests, and immerse themselves as deeply as possible into the local culture. At the same time, NYU housing provides a community of support to our students via on-site staff, as well as students sharing their experiences as they acclimate to Accra.

The student affairs staff is responsible for assisting students with daily issues to crisis support. The staff is trained to deal with day-to-day problems that many students face while studying abroad. Utmost discretion will be used in dealing with your case. Via the Community Resource Assistants students are afforded both formal and informal linkages into local peer networks, and provided with access to peers who can answer their questions.

Local staff organize a number of activities with and for students. The objective of these activities is to help students to become an active part of the NYU Accra community and experience Ghanaian life in interesting, fun, and profound ways. To find out exactly what is going on during the semester, keep an eye on the Calendar of Events and speak with local staff.
