The campus is generally just quite large and disjointed--by design. Students are more independent than at other schools and do their own thing.

Living in New York is extremely expensive. However, NYU does provide many resources for finding housing.
College Sophomore 2012-11-26T20:25:05Z
NYU does have Greek Life but it's incredibly small and not a lot of people join it. It's not a big deal at all.
College Sophomore 2012-11-26T20:23:59Z
If you have a fake ID, going out in the city is great. If not, there a lot of dorm parties that are good also. The music is good and the atmosphere is too.

Guys & Girls:
There are all sorts of people at NYU - from the really artsy type, to the preppy or sporty. It all depends on what you're looking for, but you can pretty much find anyone you want, and a great deal of both guys and girls are really good looking. Personally, I like the artsy type, and trust me there are a lot of really good looking ones out there.

Honestly, NYU isn't big on sports at all. If you're interested in sports you can definitely join one, but it's not a huge deal on campus at all.

Guys & Girls:
From what I've noticed there are three main categories within the student body--the ones who came to the city for the arts/grunge scene, the ones who came for the night clubs, and the ones who lived in close proximity to the city (westchester, new jersey, long island)and wished they lived in the city. The last group is unfortunately the largest and they tend to fit inside the 2nd group--people who came to go clubbing. Obviously large generalizations but it is clear particularly in people's fashion: there are people who are genuinely hipster/hippies/ live in bushwick, or high fashion--could be on the sartorialist, vs. the others who shop at H&M and Urban outfitters and wear uggs and emulate the former group while also finding them weird. Most of the Tish acting students fit into the later categories. People all find their friends though because it's a big school and they all tend to lose the uggs over time and lose their fear of the subway... As for guys, I am from NYC and already had a boyfriend before I came to NYU... Most of my friends are single... But there are definitely straight guys and single, and plenty of older men who you can meet at bars/ life outside of NYU.
P.S. people tend to be pretty fit/ thin because of all the walking and the pressure to look good in your high-fashion heels

Tons of clubs, but you really have to go to Club Fest in the fall to find anything. Also check out the Listservs for clubs for those who didn't go to Club Fest. In terms of sports, it helps to like fencing over football, considering we don't have an American football team, and fencing is our biggest sport.
Operative word for anything related to school: walking. You walk everywhere for everything.

There's NYU buses going around, plus the metro. Dorms are all near NYU buildings, and it's nice to just walk to class. Metro is dirty and disgusting though.
College Freshman 2012-11-25T06:32:22Z
only been here for like 2 months and I already know so many people doing drugs in almost every dorm.
College Sophomore 2012-11-18T22:23:02Z
There are great buildings that are recently renovated and seem very new.
College Sophomore 2012-11-18T22:21:36Z
There are minimal parking spaces. Most are in public garages that you have to pay a large sum of money to keep your car there for.
College Sophomore 2012-11-18T22:18:06Z
The facilities at NYU are very up-to-date. All the dining halls are very well maintained and new, as well as the freshman dorms. The dorms themselves are very large for city dorms, which is a great plus. Some academic buildings are a little rusty, especially Silver. But other than that, the buildings are all pretty new.

I'm studying Film Scoring, and this is one of the only 3 schools in the country that offers this Graduate program.

The computer lab is very well equiped, the connection fails at times.

The University Library is very extense. NYU downtown location puts it in the middle of lots of things to do and see in music, art, academia and many others.
College Sophomore 2012-11-12T18:24:22Z
Really good Palladian, Hayden and Kimmel are the best.
College Sophomore 2012-11-12T18:23:47Z
Super lenient from NYU security. From the police in New York, thats a whole other story.
College Sophomore 2012-11-11T16:48:32Z
NYU is so stingy about money. You really cannot count on getting any sort of grant- you're really lucky if you do.
College Sophomore 2012-11-11T16:19:53Z
Nightlife is absolutely for 21+ students or those students that have made the smart investment in fake IDs. Even then sometimes it can be costly because you most likely have to pay for cover and alcohol. Cover is usually higher for guys. If your under 21 you usually have to work to find a party or be careful about drinking in dorms. There is plenty of stuff to do at night that involves not partying though. There are comedy clubs and movie theaters and play houses everywhere.
College Sophomore 2012-11-11T16:13:46Z
There is Greek life at NYU but unlike at other schools it is not the driving force behind most students social lives. There is no housing for underclassmen and when you can move in, it is only to a penthouse in one of the upper class men dorms located quite a ways from campus.
College Sophomore 2012-11-11T16:11:26Z
New York is a really big city and there is usually something to do. There is great shopping very close to us and great public transportation can take you uptown towards Museum Mile and Central Park. Despite what you have heard New York is actually relatively safe. I feel safe most of the time, especially on transit. The only thing is New York can get kind of lonely so be prepared.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
