NYU continues to require strict standards for access to NYU settings and NYU-sponsored activities that take place off campus. If you’re not a current NYU student or employee, please follow the policies and procedures on this page for visitors, vendors, or affiliates.

All visitors, vendors, and affiliates must be sponsored by an NYU employee. Advanced planning is required; same-day visit requests are not permitted.

Where This Policy Applies

The visitor, vendor, and affiliate policies and protocols outlined on this page apply to all NYU settings and University-sponsored activities. This includes:

  • Off-campus activities (e.g., events, meetings) sponsored by the University
  • On-campus activities (e.g., events, meetings) sponsored by the University
  • All NYU buildings and facilities, indoors and outdoors (excluding residence halls; review the residence hall guest policy here)

Requirements for Visitors, Vendors, and Affiliates

All visitors, vendors, and affiliates are required to adhere to the following:


Must be 5 years of age or older.


Must show a valid government-issued photo ID (children under 18 can provide non-government identification).

Documentation must include:

  • Name

Note: If the documentation proof you provide does not meet these requirements, you will not be allowed access to NYU settings and NYU-sponsored activities, including those that take place off campus.

Please follow your sponsor’s instructions for how to provide proof of vaccination. Depending on the specific setting or activity, you may be required to upload your proof of vaccination at least 5 business days prior to the first day of your visit. It is essential that you comply with these timelines and instructions.

Health and Safety Protocols

We recognize that COVID-19's effects have been disparate, and its impacts on poor communities and communities of color have been especially painful. In our response to the coronavirus, NYU is committed to mitigating those impacts as well as ensuring no one in our community is ostracized, bullied, or mistreated due to ignorance about this disease.

If any member of our community believes they have experienced harassment or discrimination, we encourage them to report concerns to the Bias Response Line.
