Shanghai isn’t just China’s largest city—it’s a rapidly growing international hub for business, technology, art, and innovation. Follow some of our students at NYU Shanghai as they get to know their new home.
NYU Shanghai is located in Pudong, the city’s thriving financial district, which is home to China’s tallest structure and one of the world’s most iconic skylines.
The NYU Shanghai campus is housed in one building, making it an academic and social center for students right in the heart of the city.
As part of NYU Shanghai’s curriculum, students explore the city as a site of history, commerce, and culture, like in this marketing course called Experiential Learning.
Abundant green spaces throughout the city, such as Fuxing Park, pictured here, complement the bold and modern architecture of contemporary Shanghai.
All over the city, food carts and restaurants put their unique spin on much-beloved dumplings.
Students can unwind in the Tianzifang neighborhood, where small cafes alternate with trendy shops.
In and around the M50 arts district, you’ll find street art as well as dozens of galleries featuring contemporary artists.
