Recent Updates: The university is welcoming back visitors to campus. More information can be found on our COVID-19 Community Guide.

  • Our undergraduate, graduate, and student teams host a wide range of admission events throughout the year. You can learn all about our programs, the process of applying or transferring, preparation of a portfolio or audition repertoire, and life inside our classrooms and on our New York City campus.

    Our Welcome Center building is located at 72 Fifth Avenue, on the corner of 13th Street, and is currently open to external visitors. Before visiting us in person, please familiarize yourself with the university's health and safety protocols:

    • All visitors must provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination—including a booster if eligible. 
    • The New School has partnered with CLEAR to use Health Pass, an online tool that safely and simply provides proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Before coming to campus, download the CLEAR app and enroll for free. 
    • Masking inside all university buildings is required. 

    We look forward to welcoming you to our campus and thank you in advance for helping us keep all members of our community safe. For more information, visit our COVID-19 Community Guide.

      For the summer and fall terms, our in-person offerings include pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and campus tours accommodating a maximum of nine prospective students with one guest each. Visitors without appointments may interact with Welcome Center staff in the Welcome Center lobby. 

        Campus tours through September 16 are now available for online registration. Tours will not be offered from August 20 to September 5, to accommodate new student orientation, the start of classes, and the Labor Day holiday. Tours for the remainder of the fall term will be posted September 9. 

        Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus. If you are unable to schedule an in-person tour, we encourage you to take our virtual tour and connect with us through one of our many additional online events. 

        Those interested in learning more about our academic programs, admission requirements, or campus life are invited to connect online with a Welcome Center student assistant through our Welcome Center Virtual Desk. Virtual desk hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday. No appointment is necessary.
