  • 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, how to prepare a portfolio or audition repertoire, and life in our classrooms and on our New York City campus.

    Throughout the fall semester, our in-person offerings will be limited to pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and campus tours accommodating up to three families. Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus or meet with Admission staff. Visitors without appointments will be allowed to interact with Welcome Center staff briefly (up to ten minutes) in the Welcome Center lobby. 

    All visitors must:

    • Present proof of vaccination (e.g., CDC card—hard copy or picture, Excelsior Pass) to Welcome Center staff at the front desk
    • Attest that they are currently experiencing no symptoms and are not actively in quarantine or isolation due to a positive test result, exposure, or recent travel
    • Wear a mask in all university buildings and indoor spaces for the duration of their visit

    Visitors with appointments to meet with Admission or participate in a campus tour must also present proof of a negative PCR test result no older than seven days before the visit date. 

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

    The university will be closed from Friday, December 24, 2021, through Sunday, January 2, 2022. The Welcome Center will reopen on Monday, January 3, 2022. 

  • 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.


    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 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.
