NYU Precollege is college. At NYU Precollege you’ll experience what it means to manage your time as a college student between class, study groups, homework, and social activities. You’ll also learn how to live, work, and learn with an array of different people from different backgrounds. Your time at NYU Precollege will introduce you to a newfound independence (e.g. doing your own laundry, organizing your schedule, etc.). But don’t worry; NYU has a host of support services to help you with your introductory experience as a college student!
As an NYU Precollege student, you have access to all the learning resources of the University and the surrounding city. Below, you will find a list of all the facilities, resources, and technical help, available to you through NYU.
Events & Activities
NYU Summer Programs offers a robust calendar of events and activities for all students in high school programs on campus, including NYU Precollege. Events are optional and take place in the evenings and on weekends. Participation in events is free, however students will be responsible for the cost of transportation if an event is off campus or any personal costs (ex. souvenirs).
Students sign up for events via a weekly email they will begin to receive before the program begins. Event emails are sent to students at their NYU email address, and students are encouraged to check their NYU email account regularly.
Program Assistants (PAs) are current NYU students who live in the residential hall and support both residential and commuter students. Each NYU Precollege student will have their own PA, and your PA will be a primary resource in the program. Whenever you have a question about class, campus, or the city, contact a PA. PAs will also run the events and activities for all students.
NYU Student Affairs
NYU’s Student Affairs Offices provide resources and support for students outside of class. Offices include the Center for Student Life, LGBTQ+ Center, Global Spiritual Life, and Center for Multicultural Education and Programs. For information or questions about these resources and more, contact your Precollege advisors at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-998-2292.
