Explorations Communities

Your community starts here. 
Explorations communities put students into an environment where living and learning is dynamic and constant.   Faculty Affiliates and Resident Assistants, together with residents, work to offer programs throughout the year in order to explore the specific themes in the building, as well as other themes that emerge of interest to the residents. This expansive programming inside the residence halls responds to the overwhelming desire of our residents to feel fully connected, building an overall sense of belonging in our residence halls.  

All themed engagement communities across NYU will have a similar look and feel. Students are assigned throughout the building so as to help generate interest across themes in a particular residence hall. And, all students in the residence hall are invited to participate in programs generated by the themed communities.  

We are looking forward to an engaging year with the deep connections and learning that are hallmarks of our NYU community.
