On behalf of our entire community, welcome to NYU Abu Dhabi! Here at NYUAD, our students join a truly global community, see the world with new eyes, extend their comfort zone, and use the knowledge, network and resources of NYU to make a difference that extends beyond themselves. We have created this website to share the NYUAD student experience. Here you will find the services, activities, and opportunities our students take advantage of on a daily basis.

In the Division of Campus Life, we strive to support and challenge our students as they develop into scholarly and well-informed student-citizens who are critical thinkers, culturally competent, and mindful of their civic responsibilities as future global leaders. We do this through services, programs, and opportunities in the following areas: orientation and first-year programming; athletics and recreation; career development; health and counseling services; residential education; intercultural education & spiritual life; student life (leadership development, student clubs, and community service); and fitness and wellness.

The one of a kind university experience developed at NYU Abu Dhabi is profoundly valuable. Our students engage across vast differences, develop their own conferences, learn experientially about Abu Dhabi and the region, intern with cutting edge organizations, and compete on the pitch in the Abu Dhabi Inter-university Sports League.

After four years here our students are poised to follow their personal, scholarly, and professional passions. They earn places in prestigious graduate programs, secure employment at some of the world’s top business and institutions, and are well prepared to be forces for a more just and peaceful world.
