Academic and Student Affairs Specialist and Instructor
The first NYUAD undergraduates to study in New York were a group of sophomores who spent the spring 2012 semester at NYU New York. Today, NYUAD students have the option to study at NYU's New York campus throughout the year — during the fall and spring semesters, J-Term, and summer sessions — and approximately 400 students do so every year.
19 Washington Square North is a welcoming space for NYUAD students to work, socialize, and collaborate with all members of the NYU community. In recent years, a growing and enthusiastic alumni base in the tri-state area increasingly uses the building to host events, allowing them to continue their support of and connection to NYUAD.
The team at 19 Washington Square North provides academic support, orientation programs, social and cultural activities, community service projects, and cultural trips for students enrolled in the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Scholars Program and the NYU Abu Dhabi Summer Academy. The team also provides support to SPSP alumni.
NYU students from New York and Shanghai are welcome to study away at NYU Abu Dhabi.
