Students are not the only members of the NYU community, their parents are, too!  We understand that to both parents and students, NYU can seem large and daunting, and NYC even more so.

We hope the information we provide here and via email to students is helpful to you and your student as he/she prepares for study at NYU.  As a parent, the best thing you can do to assist your student with preparations is to discuss January Term with one another.  Conversations about what to expect while studying at NYU and living in New York City can be immensely helpful.

If you have questions about NYU, do not hesitate to contact the Office of University Programs at
