    Campus Tours

    We offer student-led informational walking tours of The New School throughout the year. Tours are a great way to learn more about Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, our Greenwich Village campus, student life, academics, and the admission process. These walking tours are approximately one hour long and include a sit-down information session. The size of tour groups is limited. Prospective students should register in advance and call the Office of Admission at least two days before the tour date to confirm their attendance.

    Lang Admission Information Sessions

    Join us for a 30-minute information session at which you can learn more about the application process from current students. These exceptional students offer helpful advice about Lang admission criteria, the common application, writing an admission essay, etc. in a more quiet setting than the traditional campus tour. Every session includes a question and answer period. Information sessions are offered Monday through Friday at 2:00 p.m. Please register in advance.

    Accepted Transfer Student Phone Appointments

    We encourage our accepted transfer students who have confirmed their attendance to make a phone appointment with the Transfer Enrollment Coordinator. Our coordinator provides information about what to do before coming to campus and transfer credit evaluations. To set up an appointment, contact Lang admission. Skype appointments are available for international students.

    Class Visits

    High school seniors have the the opportunity to experience our seminar classes at Lang. Registrants will be contacted before the visit date by the class visit coordinator and be given the opportunity to express a preference from the list of available classes. Class visits are offered Mondays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. Please register one week in advance.

    Student Counselors

    College guidance counselors are encouraged to explore the New School's website to learn more about the academic programs, internships, and connections with New York City of Eugene Lang College and the other divisions of The New School.

    School Group Visits

    Eugene Lang College welcomes groups from high schools and community-based organizations. To arrange for a group tour, contact Denise Rodriguez at least one month in advance of your planned visit date. Group tours are limited to high school students; we cannot accommodate middle school groups at this time.

    Dance Open House and Auditions

    Lang applicants interested in the dance program are encouraged to attend an open house and placement audition. This event provides an opportunity to learn about dance at Eugene Lang College and audition for placement within the program. This year, our Open house/audition event for dance program applicants will be held October 24, 2015.

    If you are not able to attend, you can submit a video for advanced placement in the program. Include a short demonstration of class exercise and phrase work, which can present a combination of genres and styles (5-10 minutes) and a solo work that highlights your strengths and personal style. Email a link to your audition to Include your full name, address, and student ID number in the body of the email.

    The New School maintains five residence halls in Lower Manhattan, all within walking distance of our academic facilities in Greenwich Village.
