Tours of our Washington Square campus with a current graduate or professional school student are available! Register to learn about the schools, colleges, centers, and institutes that make up professional and graduate programs at NYU. 

As a visitor on our campus, your safety is our priority. NYU's visitor policy no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination for students or visitors. However, staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, including booster shots, remains strongly recommended for the health and safety of the student and campus community. All are welcome to wear masks anytime they choose.

Vaccine and Boosters

We encourage everyone in the NYU community to stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination. Most people are eligible and recommended to receive the new vaccine. While NYU no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination for most community members and visitors, vaccination is a key tool in reducing the impact of a COVID-19 infection and helps prevent the spread to others.
Note: Primary series vaccination continues to be required for covered Dental students and Dental employees in accordance with applicable law.


As a community, we embrace the choice by friends, classmates, and colleagues to wear a mask and are committed to establishing an atmosphere where masks are always welcomed. Masking is only required in healthcare settings (e.g. Student Health Center, Dental Practice).  Higher quality masks include: disposable masks (surgical or medical procedure masks), KN95 masks, KF94 masks, and N95 masks.

If You're Sick

  • Stay home and distance yourself from others until your isolation period is over.
  • Wear a high-quality mask at all times if you must be around others, including the people you live with.
  • Only go out in public for essential reasons (to buy food, medication, or seek medical care) and return home as soon as possible to limit your exposure to others.
