Like New York itself, Parsons never sleeps. The school is animated by a vision of progressive creativity and social activism, and energized by its kinetic urban environment. Parsons is where ambition, ingenuity, and collaboration tirelessly converge.
Parsons students have access to extensive studio facilities and professionally staffed model, fabrication, and print shops, including rapid prototyping, photography and imaging labs, metalworking, jewelry, and woodworking facilities.
In addition to individual program facilities, Parsons provides resources, including design libraries, computer labs, and galleries and exhibition facilities, that are available to all Parsons students.
New School Services
These are supplemented by shared New School facilities, including
libraries, as well as an array of
student services, ranging from health care to extracurricular and student development programs.
New York Life
Everyone should live in
New York City at least once. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, Parsons students live, work, and dream in one of the world’s great cities. It is Parsons' most important classroom.
