NYU is the largest private research university in America - and now a university with a global influence like no other. Three degree-granting portal campuses comprise NYU's global network: one in the heart of New York City, a second in Abu Dhabi, and a third in Shanghai.

Since its inception, NYU has been a distinctly urban university, one that NYU founder, Albert Gallatin, called a university that is "in and of the city." Today, the University has evolved into a university that is "in and of the great cities of the world."
