NYUAD Response to COVID-19

In coordination with NYU leadership, local health authorities, and our Abu Dhabi partner, we continue to monitor coronavirus-related developments.

Online and remote instruction for NYUAD will continue through to the end of the semester. Students and other residents remain on campus and residences remain open as well as the dining halls, health center, and select other facilities, in line with current guidance and with every proper precaution taken to ensure social and physical distance.

Important information

If you have recently come into contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus, traveled to an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of the coronavirus, or if you have a fever and cough or shortness of breath, you must:

  • Seek immediate medical care. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Stay home and self-isolate (see below). Except for seeking medical care, avoid contact with others.
  • Follow self- and community-care guidelines (see below).


NYUAD students, faculty, and staff should reach out to the the Health Center Coronavirus Response Team at +971-02-628-6611 or av102@nyu.edu if you are feeling sick, especially if you have a fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
