New York University
Founded in 1831, New York University is the largest private university in the United States. The University has degree-granting campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai and operates 11 global academic centers and research programs in more than 25 countries. New York University is also one of the largest employers in New York City, with more than 19,000 employees.
The core of New York University is the academic enterprise. The best students and faculty are drawn to the University by the allure of being part of a compelling intellectual and creative enterprise, a community of scholars characterized by collaboration, innovation, and incandescent teaching. NYU students get the experience of attending a truly global university, anchored in New York City but with nodes throughout the world. It offers more than 400 undergraduates, graduate and research programs.
University life at NYU is supplemented with a variety of resources and services provided by the University. From major ingredients like financial aid, registration, information technology, and housing to the important daily details like lockers and copying services.
NYU is primarily located in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village and downtown Brooklyn where there’s no doubt that the neighborhoods feel like a community. Many of NYU’s academic and administrative buildings and freshman residence halls border Washington Square Park. The sidewalks are full of students on their way to class, and members of the NYU community fill the restaurants, shops, and other businesses. Both on campus and off, the people of NYU are directly involved in the day-to-day excitement, culture, and opportunity of the city that serves as a very real extension of NYU’s campus and classrooms.
