NYU is the University without walls. We remove the boundary between your classroom & the real world to open limitless opportunities. That’s why NYU has become one of the most influential universities in the world with campuses in 15 major cities across the globe. Our global network directly serves our students by allowing a rich academic experience led by renowned faculty with accolades ranging from the Nobel Prize to Grammy Awards. But our community is more than a list of cities & awards. Since our beginning, we’ve been champions of diversity, access, & inclusion, creating one of the most diverse student bodies with no single ethnic majority & students from over 150 countries. NYU is for risk-takers; for the bold, the curious, the innovative, for those that see a problem & find the solution simply because “we have to.” We have produced some of the brightest minds, ground-breaking research, & most influential people capable of being comfortable anywhere & effective everywhere.
