You did it! You applied to college during one of the most unprecedented times in our history. And your hard work and dedication paid off. You’ve been admitted to New York University! Congratulations! So now it’s time to celebrate. Luckily, we have a number of admitted student events happening throughout the month of April designed with you in mind. And we even created a handy resource hub so you have everything in one place (consider it your Home Base). Most importantly, our events will help you learn more about the NYU student experience and connect with other admitted students from around the world. Discover what’s inside your Home Base—and everything you need to know about April events. 

Home for the Weekend

Since you can’t visit us right now, we are bringing the celebration to your living room! Join us on April 10 and 11 for our marquee admitted student event weekend. Home for the Weekend will allow you to connect with peers, faculty, and staff at sessions and expos over the course of the weekend. So this is your chance to learn more about the University while being immersed in the unique NYU student experience. After you view your admissions decision, you’ll get an email that includes your personalized registration link for Home for the Weekend.
