NYU Schools and Colleges
NYU offers 18 highly acclaimed schools and colleges, 10 international academic centers, and the newly opened NYU Abu Dhabi campus. Drawing strength from its arts and science programs, NYU is a world-renowned academic and cultural university in the heart of New York City, with an increasingly global presence. NYU offers a diversity of undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and specialized degree programs in the humanities, sciences, law, medicine, business, education, fine arts, music, cinema, and performing arts.
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.
