The Wunsch Building is a historic landmark located along MetroTech Commons as part of our Downtown Brooklyn Campus. The building currently is home to undergraduate and graduate admissions, as well as the Wasserman Center for Career Development.
Prior to its current function, Wunsch was the site of the First Congregational Church and was an important location along the trail of the Underground Railroad. Later in the 19th century it became a center for the abolitionist movement. Wunsch was declared a historical landmark in 1981.
The Wasserman Center for Career Development
The Wasserman Center for Career Development serves as the primary resource on campus to help current NYU students and alumni find employment and internships. In an effort to be accessible to all students the Wasserman Center also has an office on our Washington Square Campus.
Wasserman provides students with one-on-one career counseling, mock interviews, résumé and cover letter workshops, and more. Students also have access to Handshake, an internship and job search service which has over 38,000 postings available. With all the support offered, it’s no surprise that 81 percent of NYU students will have had at least one job or internship by the time they graduate. And more than 95 percent of students are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation (based on the class of 2019).
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers information sessions and campus tours of the Downtown Brooklyn campus every week. These tours and information sessions are primarily targeted towards students interested in the Tandon School of Engineering. Staff from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions are available to speak with students about campus life, academics, or applying to NYU.
Being an open campus, safety is a top priority for NYU’s Office of Public Safety. Each NYU building has a public safety officer stationed at the main entrance to ensure only NYU members and approved guests are entering buildings. The Office of Public Safety also has a service called Safe Ride, which operates after midnight and allows students to get a free ride from building to building.
The SafeNYU mobile app also allows students to chat live with a Public Safety Officer, request assistance to their location, make emergency calls, report incidents, and more. The app is available throughout all 13 NYU global sites and is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Access to NYU’s safety protocols and support is easily accessible regardless of where in the world you are studying.
