University Life

Students at NYU are students of New York City itself. With many of the university's different schools scattered across the city, all of Manhattan is their campus. In fact, many professors are working professionals in their fields, be it government, banking, theater, or film, stretching the scope of NYU's influence far beyond a traditional university. While Washington Square Park frames life at NYU, the heart of the school is on every corner, in the streets themselves.


NYU Campus Tours

Campus tours are offered Monday through Friday at 10:30am, beginning at the Welcome Center. Information sessions and self-guided map tours are also available if you're unable to join the group.

What are some non-academic activities for NYU students?

Surrounded by Greenwich Village, NYU offers a unique student experience in a robustly urban campus. The school features countless student activities through over 400 clubs and organizations, including athletic events, intramural sports, theater, fraternities and sororities, film screenings, and art shows. Students can enjoy the hip neighborhood, peruse local art galleries, and enjoy community events in Washington Square Park as well.
