From the School

New York University is the largest independent research university in the United States, and is unlike any other institution of higher education. NYU has degree-granting campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, and 11 global academic centers around the world.

NYU's more than 20,000 undergraduates come from all 50 states and over 130 countries. NYU is both the No. 1 sender and receiver of students studying internationally, and we believe our global network raises the level of discourse in the classroom and provides a modern education for our global society. NYU's global sites are fully owned, operated, and staffed by NYU, creating a seamless experience for students.

The energy and resources within New York City, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai serve as extensions of our campuses which, by design, are in and of their cities, providing unique opportunities for research, internships, and job placement. Within our New York campus, NYU has 10 undergraduate schools and colleges nine of which surround Washington Square and one, our school of engineering, in downtown Brooklyn.

Students choose from thousands of courses in over 230 areas of study. Despite our size, we have a remarkably intimate academic environment on our campuses. In fact, our student to faculty ratio in New York is 10:1 and our average class size is fewer than 30 students.

A faculty of renowned scholars, researchers, and artists teach our students who take courses both inside and outside a chosen major, providing breadth across different disciplines and depth in a chosen area of concentration. NYU's urban locations enables us to attract stunning diversity in academia talent, with faculty who have won awards ranging from the Pulitzer Prize and Abel Prize in Mathematics to the Grammys and Tony's. Being in cities at the crossroads of the world enables us to offer students thousands of internship opportunities and comprehensive career preparation during their undergraduate studies. For the class of 2017, over 95% of our students were employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation. NYU is also ranked #1 for graduate employability by Times Higher Education.

Students Say

“Location, location, location” in “the most amazing city on earth,” along with “great facilities” and “top-notch faculty,” makes New York University an excellent choice for those seeking “an untraditional college experience” in “a paradise for the independent and motivated.” With more than 20,000 students and ten distinct schools offering more than 230 areas of study, NYU “is about diversity. Students are from all over the world; they come from different cultures, and they have different talents and interests. Similarly, NYU offers endless opportunities for students, no matter what their interests or ambitions are.” The school offers huge opportunities to participate in research, pursue an internship, or begin a career in the arts (although “you have to be active and willing to find these opportunities”). Given the school’s size, many students are “actually quite surprised by the accessibility of both the faculty and administration.” Although “this is not the kind of school where students really get to know all of their teachers, as it is unlikely that a student will have a professor more than once,” those who make the effort report that “it is so easy to meet with [professors] outside of class, and I still get e-mails from professors about internships, jobs, and scholarship recommendations.” Many here also tout the “great study abroad programs.”

Students Say

“There is no typical student at NYU,” where an undergraduate student body of more than 20,000 and a broad range of academic interests ensure a broad demographic. “Each school at NYU attracts a different group,” students tell us. “The Tisch School of the Arts attracts a very out-there group of actors and the like.” “Hipsters are pretty pervasive throughout all schools except Stern”; although “every school has people who break those stereotypes. [Even so,] few students can find ways to not fit in because of the huge number of students” at the university. Throughout NYU, “students tend to be incredibly motivated and ambitious.” Students insist that “it is also important to note that NYU students are very accepting of each other’s differences,” an important factor at a school that brings together “students of all different backgrounds, ethnicities, and gender identities and makes them coexist within the university.”

Students Say

“Living in New York City is the biggest part of going to school at New York University,” NYU students agree. The school’s New York City campus is located in the heart of Greenwich Village, one of the city’s major nightlife destinations, so “there is always something to do at any hour of the day,” usually within walking distance of the school. One student reports, “Every weekend there are tons of things to do, both at NYU and in New York City. NYU really takes advantage of its location, so a lot of the programming provided by residence life or the student resource center is engaging you in the city that has become your new home.” Living in the Big Apple means that “on any given day you can go to a museum, concert, sporting event, or theater performance...and a lot of the times, NYU will foot the bill if you go to an event in the city with your RA or with a club.” The location also provides plenty of internship opportunities, which is good because “the vast majority of students at NYU are interested in interning and finding jobs through that gateway.” The school has an atypical campus; it surrounds Washington Square Park, a busy public square where students love to relax when the weather is accommodating.

Sustainability

The largest private university in the United States is prioritizing sustainability. New York University has institutionalized its commitment to improving environmental performance and fostering a campus culture of sustainability in a dense urban environment. NYU’s sustainability staff is dedicated to carrying out infrastructural change to transform the city and surrounding community with the help of dedicated student, staff and faculty volunteers. NYU has cut total energy use by 30 percent in the past five years. In 2007, NYU accepted former Mayor Bloomberg’s challenge to reduce emissions by 30 percent in ten years, and accomplished the goal six years early in 2011. The launch of NYU’s high-efficiency cogeneration plant helps to further reduce NYU’s emissions. NYU’s Green Grants program awards funding to NYU students, faculty and staff to conduct research, educate the community or reduce the university’s environmental impact. For example, Kimmel Herbalmania explores the idea of growing edible plants on campus. The Green Grant-funded NYU Bike Share is now a free, fully institutionalized program with more than 1,000 members and ten locations across campus. Most dining halls are trayless, and leftover food is donated to local food banks. Student engagement programs run year round, from Orientation to Earth Month, and support more than a dozen different green campus groups. The Sustainability Task Force is made up of volunteers from across the university who develop policy, implement projects and set long-term sustainability goals; and the Advocate Program consists of staff volunteers who engage the broader NYU community by educating their colleagues about making environmentally preferable choices.

Transportation

Types of Transportation Available to Campus
La Guardia Airport is 20 miles from campus, ordinarily a one-hour drive, but longer at rush hours. Kennedy and Newark airports also serve New York City. To get to campus from any of the airports, you can take a taxi or a bus to Grand Central Station and then take a taxi or the Lexington Ave (#6) subway downtown to Astor Place. Long Island Railroad and Amtrak trains bring you to Pennsylvania Station; from there take the 8th Ave. subway (IND) downtown (A express or C or E local) to the West 4th Street/Washington Square stop. Metro-North trains bring you into Grand Central Station; from there take the Lexington Ave. subway (IRT) downtown (#6 local) to the Astor Pl. stop. Interstate buses come into the city's Port Authority Bus Terminal. Taxi or 8th Ave downtown to West 4th Street takes you to campus from there.

Driving Instructions to Campus
From the north, take I-87 (NY State Thruway), which becomes the Major Deegan Expy. in the Bronx. From there take the F.D.R. Drive south to Houston St.; head west to La Guardia Pl. (2 blocks west of Broadway). Turn north 3 blocks to Washington Square and the university. From the west and south, take an interstate highway or the New Jersey Tpke. through the Holland Tunnel, then go north on Ave. of the Americas (6th Ave.) to W. 4th St. Take W. 4th St. east to Washington Square.

Local Accommodations
New York University is in Greenwich Village, at the foot of Fifth Ave., and south of Midtown. If you consult a general New York City guide, look for accommodations south of 38th St., which will put you within a 1- to 2-mile range of the school. Taxicab transportation and public transportation, of course, are readily available. For convenience, you cannot do better than the Washington Square Hotel (103 Waverly Pl.; 212-777-9515 or lt;http://www.wshotel.com/english/ws_toc.htmgt;), just down the block from the admissions office. Accommodations are very modest, with rates to match. A 15-minute walk, past shops, galleries and restaurants, will bring you to the dazzlingly sophisticated, new Soho Grand Hotel (310 W. Broadway; 212-965-3000 or lt;http://www.sohogrand.comgt;) in the exciting art center of Soho, where, for a moderate (for New York!) rate, you can have a unique New York experience. This is a favorite of artists and photographers. The rooms have great views, and there is valet parking. Bed-and-breakfasts are located all around town in a reasonable price range. Two reservation agencies to call are Abode Bed and Breakfast (212-472-2000 or lt;http://www.abodenyc.comgt;) and Bed and Breakfast and Books (212-865-8740). NYU has arranged for guests of the university to receive special rates (moderately expensive) at Club Quarters (52 William St.; 212-443-4700) in the heart of the Wall Street District. Slightly more expensive, but reasonably priced for New York City, is the Gramercy Park Hotel (2 Lexington Ave.; 212-475-4320 or 800-221-4083 or lt;http://www.gramercyparkhotel.comgt;). It's close to the university, and the neighborhood is beautiful. See also lt;http://www.nyu.edu/hotels.nyugt;.
