Student Life at NYU Paris

Student Life at NYU Paris is about supporting you during your whole Parisian experience. Our dedicated team is here for you, right from welcome week, to guide you through all practical aspects outside of the classroom (getting around, understanding local culture, making an appointment with the doctor, housing…) and more!

Each semester we prepare a diverse cultural program with on and off-site activities (theater, ballet, trips, tastings, themed weeks, and celebrations) to which you can sign up at no additional cost. Once a week you will also receive a newsletter with important things to know and with tips and recommendations on exhibitions, movies, concerts.

With the help of dedicated peer mentors, we work on building community in the NYU Paris residence halls and for students who choose to live in a homestay.
