  • Like Yale University fills much of New Haven, it also applies to New York University to take up a lot of buildings, and in very many places. The University has campus and its buildings are located in the area around Washington Square.

  • The University is busy enough for young people, some sitting on the sidewalk even with their laptops open, something unthinkable here in Brazil. for being a region of students end up converging bars, cafes, places to hang out at night. And above all this in New York City which normally doesn't have much error. Will be nice!!

  • I discovered this area by chance walking down Broadway and it was a very pleasant surprise. The University itself is made up of different areas among which highlight the private street reserved for the schools of foreign students where courses of languages taught and show their customs, is a very nice Street with low houses with a Mediterranean air. Another thing I loved was the store at the University, with beautiful clothes, exclusive and good price, as well as with a lot of very special souvenirs.

  • Lynne McVeigh Molly Fermaglich Sharon Badal the female filmmaking staff at this school is probably responsible for me being named 1 in 6 female filmmakers to watch by Indiewire and Sydney Levine.
  • My son graduated from NYU Med School. Loved it and the wonderful, beautiful, cosmopolitan area. Carnegie Hall graduation was special. 🤗👍🏻
  • Pretty awesome location, good education standards, good facilities, good commitment to international students, a direct presence in major cities in the planet and a definitely top of the line overall experience. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because it is too expensive for the average student and the space of the New York campus is small, regardless of its awesome location
  • This is a nice place to visit. The library is huge with a great books collection. They also have historic manuscripts from some of the works of all renowned authors.
