We want you all to be comfortable getting around NYU and NYC. Please review the information below to become more familiar with how to navigate your new summer home!

Getting to NYU

Directions on how to get to NYU are online.  There is no NYU transportation service to bring you to NYU from the local airports (LaGuardia, JFK, or Newark Liberty).  You are responsible for transportation from the airport to NYU.  There are many ways to get from the airport to campus including buses and trains.  The easiest way to get to campus is to use a taxi. If you use a taxi, be sure to get one from an official airport taxi stand.  DO NOT accept a ride from an unauthorized taxi driver! 

NYU Campus
NYU's interactive campus map allows you to identify where all NYU Buildings are located. Residential students will be living in Weinstein Hall on University Place.

Don't know what building your classes are in? Check your student schedule on Albert!
Viewing your weekly schedule will allow you to see the entire building name and/or address. If the building name is still abbreviated you can click here to view an abbreviation key.

Now that you have identified your class buildings, you know the distance from Weinstein Hall to class to the subway stations and to Bobst Library! Most students walk around campus to get from place to place, but you can also utilize the NYU bus system.  Limited E bus service will be available between Union Square and Washington Square during the summer.  Students must show their NYU ID cards to use the bus.

NYC Maps
New York City is a great metropolis and we want all students to take advantage of being here! NYU Precollege students will be chaperoned on activities taking place in all five boroughs. To become familiar with the city before you arrive, check out the maps below:

New York City Maps, Manhattan Map

To use public transportation in the city, students must purchase MetroCards. One ride on a bus or subway is $2.25, but you can receive discounts when you buy a MetroCard with multiple rides.  Students will be responsible for obtaining their own MetroCards. You may purchase your Metrocard from vending machines in any subway station.  The standard MetroCard costs $4.50 and allows two entrances or "rides" on the subway. For more information about MetroCards, please visit the MTA website

Please note: Transportation is not included in the cost of Precollege activities.  To participate in any Precollege activity taking place off-campus, students must have their own MetroCards.

Commuter Transportation
For commuter students travelling to NYU's campus, please become familiar with the mode of transportation and route that is most efficient from your home. Please click here for detailed information about transportation discounts and links to the webpages of area transportation services such as New Jersey Transit, Long Island Railroad, MetroNorth, and PATH.
Safety Tips
We want all students to be safe while traveling around campus and the city. Basic safety tips are available on the NYU Public Safety website.  All students are encouraged to read this information prior to their arrival.

NYU's Student Resource Center (SRC) Summer Guide
NYU's Student Rescource Center has compiled a summer guide for all students. You can now use your travel and safety information with the summer guide and decide on an amazing adventure during your time here, and learn about resources that will be available to you!
