New York City can seem intimidating and confusing for those coming from out of town; however, we hope that these tips you’ll have no trouble navigating NYC in no time.
NYU is primarily located around Washington Square Park in the Greenwich Village neighborhood in downtown Manhattan. The campus is easily accessible via New York City public transportation. Directions on how to get to NYU are on the NYU visitor’s website. Please note: there is no NYU transportation service between campus and the local airports or bus/train terminals. All students are responsible for transportation to campus.
There are many ways to get from the airport to NYU, including buses, shuttles, trains, taxis and car service. If you use a taxi, be sure to get one from the official taxi stand at the airport. DO NOT accept a ride from an unauthorized taxi driver.
If you are flying, we advise registering your trip with NYU Traveler, the University’s web-based travel safety service.
Information about navigating the city’s streets and using public transportation can be found on the Getting Around page and January Term Student Handbook (coming soon!).
It’s a good idea to plan your route to class ahead of time. Resources like the Student Resource Center exist to help you in this process, or, if you’re ever lost, don’t hesitate to call NYU Public Safety. Check back next week for more information on housing both on and off campus
