  • Welcome to The New School

    Visiting The New School's New York City campus gives you a sense of the culture, coursework, and student life at the school. Meet current students and faculty, sit in on classes, have lunch at our cafeteria, and take in the neighborhood. If you're not in the area, check out our virtual campus tour to see our campus from afar. Then, plan a visit to experience firsthand our distinctive academic programs and beautiful facilities.

    Campus Tours for Students and Parents

    The New School's Welcome Center, located at 72 Fifth Avenue, is the first stop for visitors to our Greenwich Village campus.

    Welcome Center Hours

    • Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m.-5:45 p.m.
    • Friday, 9:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m.
    • Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

    Update March 17, 2020: As we continue to monitor the latest developments related to the novel coronavirus, our decision making and planning are guided by our sense of responsibility to protect the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. Out of an abundance of caution, the Welcome Center will be closed, and all activities including campus tours are canceled, for the remainder of the spring semester. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
