NYU is committed to fostering an inclusive environment for community members of all faiths. The University Calendar Policy on Religious Holidays affirms the University’s support for observant students who need accommodations.

Observances and Holidays

This calendar of holidays and observances is useful resource for clubs as they choose meeting dates, for University offices as they plan marquee events, and for community members to honor the holidays of friends and colleagues. You can also search Google Calendars for specific faith traditions that you can use alongside your own Google calendar.
