Staying in touch with NYU throughout your college search is a key piece to knowing who we are, what we’re doing, and where we’re going. It’s also how you can gain the information you need to make important decisions at each phase of your college search journey.

Whether you’re a current applicant who applied early decision or are putting the final touches on your regular decision application or you’re a prospective high school student, there are many ways you can stay in touch with NYU throughout your college search journey. We understand each step of the process brings to light different needs. We’re here to help

Resources to Help You Stay In Touch

The Website

First, the website. We can’t stress enough how important it is to give our website a detailed review. Of course, you’ll find information on the admissions process, but you’ll also find information on our university initiatives.

Interested in studying away? There’s a page for that too. Considering research? Browse the research centers on campus. You can even learn more about our events and traditions. There really is so much to learn about NYU, and we’re changing every day! Continue to check the website for updates.

Visiting Campus

The next way to stay in touch is through campus visits, both in person and virtually.

In-Person Options

This fall we resumed campus tours on a limited basis. While we are excited to welcome guests back to campus, we do have new protocols in place to keep you and our community safe. Students (and one guest) planning to attend a campus tour must register in advance. On the registration page, you’ll find the guidelines all visitors must follow in order to attend.

Not able to attend during one of our visit days? Download our new NYU Guided Tour app to support your self-guided tour of campus. On the app you’ll encounter stories from our student ambassadors, explore residence and dining halls up-close, and get a feel for what it’s like to live and learn in New York City.

Virtual Experiences

Start with a virtual information session for one, two, or all three of our degree-granting campuses. Next, attend a Trailblazer session to meet faculty members and learn more about their areas of expertise. Oh, and be sure you don’t miss out on our Zoom In On series, where admissions counselors share tips and tricks on everything from their own college search journeys to debunking myths about NYU. Can’t attend a virtual session? Check out our YouTube channel for session recordings.


Social Media

Sure the website and virtual events are great, but what about connecting with current students? Social media has made it so easy to do that. As a matter of fact, at NYU, we have a variety of different platforms specific to the admissions office. Our @MeetNYU Instagram is where you can ask student ambassadors questions through AMA (Ask Me Anything) or check out our TikTok for advice from our current students. Social media is also a great way to explore campus life at all three of our campuses no matter where you’re located.

The Mailing List

Finally, joining the mailing list is the easiest way to stay in touch with NYU. If you join, you’ll receive the most important information right in your inbox. No more searching for information about deadlines or what documents you need to submit for financial aid. You can even tailor your submission to your interests, such as campus and major preferences.
