NYU’s Network of Support: A Guide

Welcome to NYU’s Network of Support! Termed “network” since there is no hierarchy within NYU’s on-campus organizations – they are all equally important!

Moving to a new city or a new environment can be quite daunting. Luckily, NYU has resources and communities in place for every area of student life. The following below are a snapshot of a few of NYU’s resources (based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs!)

Food & Rest

NYU Dining Halls

NYU Dining Halls provide 19 locations across campus (both Manhattan & Brooklyn). Students can use a meal plan, campus cash, or card to pay.

NYU Residence Halls

Each student who lives on campus has a floor RA who they can go to for support. Every Residence Hall also has a Resource Center where they pick up packages, sign up for hall events, and also pick up toilet paper/trash bags!

Safety Needs

NYU Public Safety

NYU Public Safety is available 24 hours/7 days a week.

SAFE NYU App

This app is also available, which includes: 911-calling capability for life-threatening situations, push notifications, a mobile blue light that simultaneously sends your location to and calls NYU Public Safety, the ability to report incidents or tips via in-app forms, real-time chats or voice calls.

Belongingness & Love Needs

NYU Wellness Exchange

The Wellness Exchange is your greatest mental health resource at NYU.

Moses Center

New York University is committed to providing equal educational opportunity and participation for students with disabilities. The Moses Center works with NYU students to determine appropriate and reasonable accommodations that support equal access to a world-class education. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance. Disability-related information is never disclosed without student permission.

Accomplishment Needs

NYU Clubs

Over 300+ active student clubs on campus open to all students.

Class Activities Board (CAB)

Class Activities Boards are a great way for NYU undergraduate students to get involved with campus life, meet active students, plan fun events, and gain valuable leadership experience. Each Class Activities Board provides engaging programming for the members of its class, across all of the various schools at NYU.

Program Board (PB)

A student-run organization dedicated to providing affordable, quality entertainment and special events for the entire NYU community. PB reaches out to the university community by co-sponsoring major events and theme celebrations with other clubs and departments. Past events have included concerts by Future, Jamie xx, Mykki Blanco, Kingdom, LE1F, and Vic Mensa, lectures by Kathleen Hanna, Chris Kraus, and Killer Mike, as well as popular film screenings and pre-release previews.
