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! Newsletters will be sent to students' NYU email addresses every Friday afternoon.

Global Programs New York City (GPNYC) Events - The GPNYC office offers monthly ticketed events led by a GPNYC staff member. This allows students to engage with their peers, an administrator, and also the city! 

Student-Led Events - Each month Study Away Students get the opportunity to sign up for an event led by their fellow student ambassadors and senators. Previous trips have included Carnegie Hall, the Guggenheim Museum, and the United Nations.

Volunteer Opportunities - GPNYC offers both semester-long and one-day volunteer opportunities ranging from afterschool homework help and tutoring to park clean up!

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

GPNYC Cohort Program - The GPNYC Cohort Program gives students opportunities to engage with their peers in the Study Away community and with members of the GPNYC team! The program offers events that explore on-campus resources, along with some of the best things to do and eat in 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.

Welcome and Farewell Gatherings - While students are spread throughout the residence halls and in courses in various undergraduate schools, the welcome and farewell gatherings allow the cohort of Study Away Students to connect and share their New York experience.
