    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

    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 four on-campus residences in Greenwich Village offer 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.

    New School public programs and events, both in person and online, offer viewers a chance to ask questions, discover new ideas, make connections, and find a community of people ready to engage with what's happening in the world. Unmatched in quality and quantity, public programs are a hallmark of the New School experience.

     

    We are here to support the health and well-being of students so that they can learn and succeed while at The New School. We provide access to high-quality health care and services that enhance student wellness and quality of life in and outside of the classroom.
