  • Our undergraduategraduate, 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.  

    All visitors must be fully vaccinated and boosted and present proof of vaccination to the Welcome Center staff. Visitors must wear a mask in all university buildings and indoor spaces for the duration of their visit.

      Visitors who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to stay in the building.

      For the spring semester, our in-person offerings are limited to pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and campus tours accommodating up to seven students with one guest each. Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus or meet with admission staff. Visitors without appointments may interact with Welcome Center staff within the Welcome Center lobby. 

      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.

      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. 

    • Directions to Campus

      Parsons tours, information sessions, and workshops begin at the Welcome Center, which is located at 72 Fifth Avenue (on the corner of 13th Street and Fifth Avenue) in New York City's Greenwich Village. Most students use public transportation to get around campus — we encourage visitors to do the same whenever possible. Use the links below to plan your visit to and around New York City.

      Driving

      Traffic on Fifth Avenue is one way southbound; traffic on 13th Street is one way westbound. For a guide to New York City parking, visit NYC.com. There are several pay parking garages along 13th Street and in the area. There are also on-street parking meters nearby, but on-street parking is scarce on weekdays.
