Undergrad Profile

New York University—the largest private research university in the United States—is an urban university with a global network of campuses worldwide.

NYU’s 21,000 undergraduates benefit from extraordinary liberal arts curricula, research opportunities, and an extensive professional network.

NYU in New York City
Greenwich Village is NYU’s neighborhood, and New York City is an extension of NYU’s campus. The world capital of finance, communication, and culture, New York City offers the best in theater, dance, music, film, libraries, museums, and galleries. Here you can access internships that complement course work and professional goals. NYU’s alumni network of more than 400,000 and affiliations with corporations, government agencies, and social institutions will help you launch a successful career.

NYU Abu Dhabi
NYU Abu Dhabi blends global academic experiences with a liberal arts, sciences, and engineering curriculum. In Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s most dynamic cities, you will conduct research, volunteer, intern, and travel in the region and throughout NYU’s global network.

NYU Shanghai
NYU’s comprehensive liberal arts campus in China’s financial and commercial capital welcomed its first class in fall 2013. As at the other two campuses, you’ll gain an academic foundation in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences before focusing on your major.

Global academic centers
You may also study away at one of NYU’s global academic centers in Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Sydney, Tel Aviv, or Washington, D.C.

Life at NYU
Your NYU experience takes on the shape of the life you want. Beginning with Welcome Week, you’ll join clubs, volunteer in the community, find jobs and internships—and just like that, you’ll become part of the NYU community.

Ninety-two percent of freshmen live in traditional residence halls located at the heart of our Greenwich Village and Brooklyn campus locations—and in select apartment-style halls.

Admission to NYU is highly selective. The Admissions Committee reviews each application holistically, evaluating many factors that include your academic record, a combination of standardized test scores, letters of evaluation, and your personal statements and essay. The committee also reviews your talents, personal attributes, and goals. For details, visit www.admissions.nyu.edu.
