    Family Weekend

    This year's Family Weekend was held October 4-6, 2019. Parents and families connected with other New School families and enjoyed a jazz brunch, a boat tour of New York Harbor, resource and activity fairs, and the university's Centennial celebration, The Festival of New. Dates for the 2020-2021 Family Weekend will be announced in summer 2020.

    Don't yet have your New School gear? Visit The New Store in the lobby of the University Center, 63 Fifth Avenue. You can also shop a special collection for families and pre-purchase for pickup when you arrive on campus!

    Additional Resources

    A parent or other family member can access a student's billing accounts and financial aid information only if the student has granted the family member access to their account as an authorized user through MyNewSchool.
