Manhattan apartments are small and pricey, but you can't beat the location; everything is easy access. NYU has an off-campus housing listing, but other websites are often more useful.

There is no need for a car to access New York City. However, since I commute to school, whenever I have gone to campus, there has always been a spot available within a few blocks of the school.

Guys & Girls:
Ha good luck girls. If you're gay you'll probably have an awesome time here, same for straight guys. Unfortunately the closer you get to campus the uglier males become. It's New York City so in theory if you work hard enough you could probably find something. Girls are mostly pretty though, so have fun competing with that.

Greek life is basically non-existent at NYU. There are a few frats and sororities, but you can't have houses because we live in the city. They generally throw parties at bars or clubs and sometimes, apartments.

All of the buildings on main campus are within walking distance of each other, so you don't need public transportation unless you're leaving the village. However, if you are, you have an array of options, such as the subway, bus, and taxis. The only reason I wouldn't give transportation an A+ is the price. It costs $2.25 per subway ride.

Guys & Girls:
Typical students are typical hipsters. There are more girls than guys and many of the guys are gay so I think the ratio should be adjusted to more like 80-20 than 60-40. If you are into artsy, studious, musical type guys (not so much the all-American, athletic, outgoing type) and wavy haired, ipod-clad girls in short laced boots then NYU is the place for you.

The academics at NYU are pretty strong across the board. You can find professors in all subjects who practice what they teach and pass on the knowledge well.

NYU has a campus located in the heart of the city and many of the buildings reflect the city-style. The buildings that have not been recently updated are in serious need of updating. The gym closest to Washington square has no air conditioning and the residence halls need to be redone.
College Sophomore 2012-10-17T17:21:00Z
NYU has some really nice buildings that are brand new but the older ones are REALLY old. Coles gym doesn't have air conditioning at all and the buildings that haven't been updated need it.

Just fill out the FAFSA on time, never had a problem receiving financial aid.

Greek life exposes you to new experiences but it's not really too big of a deal if you join one or not.
College Senior 2012-10-15T16:57:56Z
I feel protected but if one really wanted to break any such rules... there is no real way to stop one from doing so.

There's always something to do, beware if you really want to focus on your academics.
Recent Alumnus 2012-10-15T00:16:56Z
Good number of groups to choose from, not a big presence on a campus though. The Greeks pretty much hang out with only the Greeks.

Studying in New York City will be one of the greatest experiences you will ever have.

Some computer labs have ANY software you might need. Depends on what you look for.

New York City restaurants are available to you any time. The food around the area is alright.

I was one of the few that received financial aid, but it was few and far between. No matter how much aid you get, it probably won't help that much, though. Especially when tuition is upwards if $60,000.

Buses aren't necessarily reliable. You just have to walk everywhere and use public transportation, like the Metro System.

International students abound. You name a country I guarantee you there is someone from there at this school.

Guys & Girls:
Ok if you are a single girl looking for a guy, just stop. It won't happen, and unless you are into egotistical jerks you will have to look outside of NYU. Most of the guys here are gay, so keep that in mind when flirting. Also all the girls here are ridiculously pretty.

In terms of actually winning sports games, I have no idea. No one really participates in sports because a) this is a major art/business school b) it isn't a priority for most. But I will say that the facilities are amazing. Palladium gym is huge and fantastic for students to go to. We have a rock wall, a huge swimming pool, and tons of really high tech equipment. And if working on the machine isn't your thing there are classes you can take too (but I think you have to pay extra for those).

Keep in mind that I am a Freshman in the cinema studies department. For the first two years you will take a one cinema class per semester and the rest are gen ed requirements. Past the requirements you can take essentially any cinema classes you want, but by junior year you have to declare a minor. You can cross minor and major within Tisch or Stern, but it does depend on what you want to do. Internships are not recommended for Freshman but they are really, and I mean REALLY helpful when it comes to recommendations. They keep a log of where students have interned and what they did.And my teachers are passionate and knowledgeable about what they teach, that's what I like most about it. Plus all your cinema classes are in movie theaters within the building!

Dorms at NYU are really hit or miss, and which one you get is really just the luck of the draw. They "try to accommodate" you, but they miss all the time.
Out of the freshman dorms, Third North is definitely the nicest- it has one of the best dining halls, each dorm has a kitchen, it's social, and it's the newest. While Hayden is definitely the most popular choice, considering it's got the rep (and rightfully so) of being the party dorm.
For upperclassman, Gramercy Green is definitely the nicest dorm- it has hardwood floors and granite countertops, and is the same price as third north. It's a little out of the way, so it's just deciding what is more important to you. Palladium is usually a popular pick, considering it basically has the world revolving around it; it houses the gym, the most popular dining hall, and it's a pretty average/nice dorm.
College Sophomore 2012-09-25T07:39:11Z
All of NYU's facilities are top notch. The Bobst library for example, is overwhelming it is so large; but it such an amazingly beautiful masterpiece. Gyms like Palladium and Coles are so fully equipped and nice that you'll have no excuse for gaining the freshman 15. All the NYU buildings are very nice, clean, and look like it charges its students way too much to go there (which it does, proudly.)
Sorry, there are no reviews.
