  • The boundaries between classroom and city dissolve at The New School as you live and study in one of the world's most celebrated urban environments. See it for yourself with a visit to our New York City campus or by joining one of our many online events and information sessions.

    "I toured a lot of schools before The New School, waiting for that third-grade crush feeling. But the tour and the facilities here — laser cutters, printers, dorms — inspired me."

    —Cassandra Bils, BA Integrated Design/BFA Journalism + Design Dual Degree

    Plan Your Virtual Visit

    Plan a Campus Visit

    Due to concerns about the novel coronavirus, The New School has made the difficult decision to temporarily close our Welcome Center and suspend campus tours and on-site events. Meanwhile, we are committed to keeping you virtually connected with our admissions team and online events at The New School. Experience our immersive virtual campus tour, register for an online information session, and explore a selection of videos that give you a sense of the culture, coursework, and student life at our university.
