All of our students around the globe have had to adjust almost overnight to a radically different learning environment due to COVID-19.  While we wish it were otherwise, we at NYU are committed to supporting your academic progress and success during this difficult time. We hope you find the information and links below helpful in navigating this unpredictable period.


All classes at NYU campuses in New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi, as well as its global sites, are being conducted remotely. We are here to support you as you transition to this new learning environment. We encourage you to continue to connect with your faculty members, academic advisors, and explore the online resource and support available to you during this time. Students are encouraged to reach out to the Office of Student Success and explore the various services available to them in NYU Connect.

Student Employees of NYU

We recognize the potential financial hardship created for our student employees by having to leave campus. For that reason, if you had an on-campus job NYU will continue to pay you for the remainder of the semester. All graduate and undergraduate student employees, be they Federal Work Study employees or otherwise, are asked to continue their jobs remotely at this time. If you are unable to telework, NYU will continue to pay you for the remainder of the semester. Your supervisor may be in touch to discuss whether your job responsibilities as well as your current personal circumstances make remote work feasible. For more information, visit the On-Campus Employment Remote Work Update.


All schools, departments, programs, and units  canceled, postponed, or transformed all programs and events to be  in a "virtual" format for the remainder of the semester. Look for announcements via email or on the web pages that would ordinarily share information about those events to find the most up to date information about the current status of the event you are interested in attending.

Please also note that currently, all of NYU's properties are cleaned and disinfected every night. Also, additional hand sanitizer locations have been installed throughout campus; they are checked regularly to ensure sufficient sanitizer is available. (Custodial staff also ensure that soap is available in soap dispensers in bathrooms.) Additional signage has been installed throughout campus to remind the NYU community of the importance of proper hand-washing hygiene.

Based on CDC guidance, NYU has developed specific protocols in the event that a student contracts COVID-19 or has exposure to another student or person who has contracted the virus.
