Admissions Counselors

Meet the Admissions Team

See, we are real people, and we’re so glad you’re considering to spend the next four years of your life at NYU. We think it’s a pretty special place. But see for yourself by reviewing our website and by paying NYU a visit. If you need additional information, then please contact us at 212-998-4500 or admissions@nyu.edu and one of our admissions counselors (those are our smiling faces below) will be happy to help. Of course, you can also meet us in person at one of our events on campus or in a city near you.

If you're interested primarily in our campuses in Abu Dhabi or Shanghai, we have dedicated admissions counselors that specialize in those locations. Meet their teams:

We can’t wait to see you at NYU!
