Programs For Study Away Students in New York

To help students become acquainted with both NYU New York and New York City, several programs are specially available to Study Away Students. Read all about these and University-wide events in our weekly newsletters!


Weekly Excursions - Site staff lead tours of NYC museums and historical sites, sponsor boat tours of the New York Harbor and an ice skating event in Central Park, along with bi-monthly student teas. 

Student Meetups - Student Meetups are gatherings for students to socialize and meet new people from the NYU community. These events are led by the NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai student Senators. Meetups are the perfect way to engage with your peers and take advantage of free things to do around NYC!

Faculty Fellow in Residence (FFIR) Programs - Students are invited to programs organized by faculty living in the residence halls. This is a great way to meet students and faculty outside of the classroom.
