    Campus & Community

    Come to The New School and find campus life that celebrates distinctive voices. Build lifelong friendships with fellow students who share your interests, passions, and perspectives.

    The New School is situated in the heart of New York City's Greenwich Village, with an academic quad that extends from 11th to 16th Streets along Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Our urban campus places students at the center of one of the world's most vibrant and diverse communities, immersing them in the opportunities and conversations that are shaping the future. Rather than considering New York City to be merely the home of our university, we employ it as an extension of our campus and as an integral part of an educational experience that gives students access to the thinkers and doers who make the city a global cultural leader.

    Whether you're on our main campus in New York City or our Parsons Paris campus, the boundaries of the classroom dissolve as the city becomes your studio, rehearsal space, and research center.

    Since 1919, our campus has been home to revolutionary thought leaders, change-making social advocates, and ground-breaking artists. Take our quiz to find out which notable New Schooler you are most like.

    Campus & Community

    The New School is committed to diversity, inclusion, and supporting the LGBTQIA community. This year, more than 250 New School students, staff, alumni, and faculty marched in NYC's historic World Pride 2019 to celebrate this community and honor the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.

    Live and study as part of a diverse community and make friends for life. In our residence halls, photography majors live with sociologists, and anthropology students with jazz musicians. Our five on-campus residences extend from Greenwich Village to Chelsea, offering students the opportunity to live and learn in a nurturing, supportive, and collaborative environment.

    At The New School, exploration isn't confined to the classroom. Through involvement with organizations on campus, workshops, seminars, conferences, public programs, intramural sports, athletics, and fitness classes, you will find a community of people who share your passions.

    At our public programs, influential people come together to debate major issues of the day. We offer more than 1,000 programs a year that are open to all students and the broader community, giving you a front-row seat to history as it's being made.
