5 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's very much a city school, right it in the mix of New York city. If you like a city this is a great school. You are going to school in the city, not by it. Anything that goes with living in NYC goes with going to NYU

Off-Campus Housing: It's what you make of it and what you can afford. You just find an apartment in New York city if you want to live off campus.

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are a pretty good size, especially considering its in New York. Freshman dorms are friendly. It gets a little less so after everyone has found their friends sophomore year. But no one is mean, they just aren't as talkative.

Majors: Admissions process was a pretty average process. It's your basic essays and grades. Make sure you're writing is technically correct.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are parties but it's mainly around the city or dorm hang outs. Greek life has more expected college parties.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's a small community so all of the Greeks are a community as a whole, rather than rivaling organizations. It's a very accepting community. The Greeks get pent houses in one of the dorms so about 7 members from each can live in Greek housing.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There are a lot of regulations in regards to having visitors who do not go to NYU but as long as your guests are respectful, you don't have to follow all of them.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus because it is cheaper, and I love the freedom. NYU does not allow you to get housing on a semester basis only by year. I stayed at EHS until I found my place. I got the place with a bit of help from a broker and needed to have my mom and uncle cosign. I pay $1300 per month for a one bedroom apartment in Inwood (way uptown Manhattan, second to last stop on the A train) that does not have laundry, allows pets, and is near a subway station and a grocery store. The price is on the good side of average for the area, and the kitchen is of decent size for NYC. I was able to find it within a month of looking, but I did a lot of legwork and sought it out in October. I commute daily 45 min to an hour depending on what time I leave. I am very happy with my decision to live off campus.

Health & Safety: I feel safe here, but I do not spend a lot of non-class time at NYU because I live off campus. There has been a recent campaign on what consent means, and there was a serious sexual assault outside one of the buildings one morning last fall. The culprit was not affiliated with NYU

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

NYU offers students a taste of the hustle and bustle they will most likely encounter in the real world once they graduate. It is an overpopulated institution, so you have to be ready to fight to gain certain academic opportunities, but cultivating such a habit may serve as indirect training for new graduates when they have to go about securing jobs in their respective fields. Life at NYU demands a certain kind of disposition; thus, it is not for everyone. For students who love NYC and the challenge and experience it offers, it is an exciting and ever-changing community. For those who desire a community-rich college experience, NYU is lacking in that area. However, you can make an amazing experience out of what the school does offer. Whatever your choice, get ready for a mix of demanding academics and wild experiences in the city. Finding a balance between the two is key at this big-city school.

Many students claim that the best part about attending NYU is living in New York City, while other students complain about the school's large tuition. Most often, students are dissatisfied with the lack of a campus or school spirit, and many students believe that the institution is run too much like a business, with the school using millions of dollars to make NYU a global institution instead of supporting its current students. Otherwise, most students appreciate the various benefits of living in the city, such as diverse and exciting nightlife options, a broad range of cuisines, and prestigious and diverse internship opportunities.
