In the interests of social distancing, schools, departments, programs, and units are strongly discouraged from holding large gatherings. These should be cancelled, postponed, or conducted in a "virtual" way that does not bring large groups of guests and members of the NYU community together in a single venue.

All athletic events and activities for the winter and spring 2020 season have been canceled. For updates on athletics activities, check the NYU Athletics website.
