University Center Tours

Are you curious about what’s behind the brass walls of The New School’s new University Center? Starting Friday, November 30, students, faculty, and staff of The New School can take a look inside. Weekly guided tours will be led by Josh Stone, a graduate student of architecture at Parsons The New School for Design. Josh interned with Tishman Construction last summer, working on site at the University Center.

Half-hour tours are scheduled every Friday at 3:00 p.m. Each tour group is limited to ten individuals, and advance reservations are required (see the link below). Note: Tours are restricted to New School students, faculty, and staff with current ID. The University Center is not open to the general public at this time.

To take the tour:

  • Make your reservation in advance.
  • Meet at the Welcome Center at 72 Fifth Ave. Be on time. Tours begin promptly at 3:00.
  • Bring your New School ID.
  • Wear close-toed shoes without raised heels.
  • A hard hat will be provided; you must wear it throughout the tour.
  • Be prepared to walk up and down stairs and through unfinished spaces. Keep in mind that this is an active construction site.
