2018 Moments

We said hello to new faces, and goodbye to some friends. We celebrated, we learned, and then celebrated some more.

2018 brought many memorable moments to NYU Abu Dhabi, thanks to the students, faculty, and staff whose dedication and drive make our community truly remarkable and distinctly global. These are just a few of our favorite stories from the past year. 


  • NYUAD welcomes the Class of 2022: 389 students, 84 nationalities, endless possibilities.





  • Hundreds volunteer at the MENA Special Olympics events held at NYU Abu Dhabi.
  • NYU Abu Dhabi students help build sustainable houses for families in Jordan.
