NYU is beginning to reopen our Campus Without Walls for in-person campus visits. We’re rolling out the purple carpet in phases for everyone’s safety and comfort, and registration is now open for registered guests who wish to experience NYU in person. Keep checking this page for new and exciting opportunities, and join our mailing list to find out when you can join us here on campus!

Our top priority is your safety and comfort while joining us on campus. Here’s what to expect in preparation for and during your visit:

Vaccine Requirement

In advance of your visit, please be informed that NYU's vaccination requirements stipulate that you be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and boosted, once eligible and by NYU’s deadline.

Guests may be asked to present a Photo ID and proof that they:

  • are fully vaccinated (meaning you completed your primary vaccination with a FDA-authorized or WHO-listed vaccine at least 14 days ago), and
  • received one booster if required based on your age, the type of vaccine you received, and the date of your last dose. Please review NYU’s visitor page for more information.

Proof of vaccination must be in English and may be given in the form of the New York State Excelsior Pass Plus, a paper copy or digital image of a guest’s vaccination card. 

If you are not in compliance with this policy, you will not be able to participate in the guided campus visit.

What to Bring

If you're registered for a tour, print out your visitor approval confirmation email from the exception request form (or be able to show that email on a mobile device). 

Masking Policy: NYU no longer requires masking, with the exception of healthcare settings or if you have recently been exposed to or infected with COVID-19, in which case you will need to follow public health guidance on mask-wearing. While not required, we welcome members of our community and our guests to continue to wear masks if they are more comfortable doing so.

Who Can Join Me?

To keep everyone safe and our tour groups small, each student may be joined by one guest over the age of 12 on our guided tours, but there's no limit on who you can take with you on a self-guided tour! Please make sure to choose the best option for your family, unfortunately, additional travelers may not wait in the Bonomi Family Admissions Center if you choose a guided tour, but don’t worry—there’s so much to do and see in and around our campus!
