In order to join the NYU International Students group, you must first join the NYU Community group on Facebook. When joining the group, you will be prompted to enter your NYU email address through which you will soon receive a confirmation email. You will need to open and approve the confirmation email to be granted access to the International Students group and any other NYU community groups you wish to join.

If the confirmation email does not appear in your Inbox or Spam folder, we recommend changing the email that is linked with your Facebook account to your NYU email. Then make sure that your email is set to receive all email notifications from Facebook. You can do that by following these steps:


  1. Click the down arrow on the right-hand side of the blue navigation bar at the top of your Facebook window.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. In the column on the far-left, click Notifications.
  4. Under How You Get Notifications, click the Email dropdown.
  5. Under Email Frequency, click on the first option to receive all notifications.

1. Click Settings

3. Scroll down and click Email

2. Click Notifications

4. Under Email Frequency, select All notifications

After completing these steps, try joining the Facebook group again. If you have changed your settings correctly, you should receive the confirmation email.

We recommend that you change these settings through a desktop rather than a mobile device.
