New York University (NYU), in line with the vision of its founder: “In and for the city” – a university that has no walls and gates – is deeply linked with New York City, taking inspiration from its vitality. The center of NYU is its campus on Washington Square, in the heart of Greenwich Village in Manhattan.
NYU owns over 22 residence halls and two graduate living communities, home to approximately 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students during the academic year and summer session. Most of the residence halls are located in the area of NYU’s Campus, around Washington Square and Union Square.
Usually, students participating in our program are hosted in residence halls close to all NYU’s faculties and institutes, on Union Square and Washington Square, heart and life center of NYU and crossroads of the most viable districts of Manhattan: Greenwich Village, Soho, East Village and the Lower East Side, Nolita and Union Square.
