Graduate Welcome

Fall and Spring Welcome consist of a variety of programs, workshops, receptions, and fun events designed to welcome and introduce new graduate students to New York University, its programs and services, and of course New York City. Graduate students will also have opportunities to meet other new and returning graduate students, find out ways to get involved, and prepare for your first year here.

Graduate Welcome Week, produced by the Center for Student Life, will take place during the first weeks of the fall semester. Spring Welcome takes place the first week of classes of the spring semester.
