The StudentLink Center is a one-stop-shop for the administrative needs of students and serves to simplify the NYU student experience. It houses the Office of Global Services, Office of Financial Aid, the Registrar’s Office, the Office of Global Programs, and the Bursar’s Office. The goal of the office is to give students the knowledge and tools they need in order to be self-sufficient on campus and beyond. In addition, StudentLink is a resource for students’ families who have questions about the university.
Easy Access To Staff
Students can request to meet with a StudentLink Advisor online, through text message or in-person at one of the center’s kiosks. Advisors are available to meet with students in-person, in either the Manhattan or Brooklyn locations. The StudentLink Center Advisors are trained to answer questions about financial aid, international student services, and registrar needs. The staff is available for meetings in Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Portuguese, Korean and Italian, as well as English. Over 20 counselors are on staff to support the undergraduate and graduate student body.
A variety of workshops are hosted through the StudentLink Center throughout the academic year. The goal of these events is to support students as they learn to navigate the university and adulthood. Examples of events offered include: Be Financially Fit, A Day in the Life, Ask Me Anything, First Generation Student Panel, Travel Tuesday and Understanding Your NYU Bill. One event in particular, called “Adult-ish,” is a series of presentations sponsored by the Office of Financial Education. One presentation from the series educates students about student loan repayment options.
