We are getting pretty excited about the start of summer, and we hope you are, too! But before you skip happily to your first class, there are a few things you need to remember to do:
- Activate your NYU NetID and read your NYU email
- Register with the Moses Center, if applicable
- Double-check your course registration and student account on NYUHome
- Get your NYUCard
- Get your book list from the NYU Bookstore, if available
- Map out your class location
- Watch the Summer in NYC Orientation online
- Download the Summer in NYC Student Handbook
You’re registered in class and you’ve checked your course schedule online in your NYUHome Student Services Center. You see your class is in 269M 206. What the heck does that mean?
First, you can look up the building code to find out which building your class is in. Then, you can find your building on the NYU campus map. You can use the interactive map or download a PDF map with a key.
Using the example from above, “269M 206″ means your class would meet at 269 Mercer Street, Room 206. Eureka! You now know where to be for your first day of class and you can stop worrying about being that one student wandering around Greenwich Village with no clue where to go this summer.
During the summer, there will be many academic resources available to you to help you succeed in your classes! They include:
Your primary resource is your academic advisor! Your advisor is available to you to answer questions about registration, add/drop, pass/fail grades, and more!
University Learning Center (ULC)
The ULC provides free tutoring for certain courses in the math and sciences as well as information and tips about study skills and proper research.
The Writing Center
The Writing Center provides one-on-one writing support and guidance for any student enrolled at NYU. When you have a final paper to write, schedule an appointment with a consultant!
Information about these and MORE academic resources available to you at NYU, see the Academics page above or the Academic Resources section of the Summer in NYC Student Handbook.
Orientation is now available online at the Summer in NYC website!
All students are required to watch and read the information provided in the online orientation and student handbook. Stay informed!
This video highlights important information in the Summer in NYC Student Handbook and goes over what you need to do prior to and at the start of the summer to begin your time at NYU on the right foot and ensure a successful summer term!
Summer in NYC Student Handbook
You may download and print this handbook to prepare for Summer in NYC and use it as a reference throughout the summer. It contains all the basics of what you need to know about the Summer in NYC program, NYU, and New York City including important dates and deadlines, academic policies and procedures, resources and services available on campus, and information about how to get the most out of your time in the city.
Curious about what textbooks you will need for class? You can search for a list of required books online at the NYU Bookstore website. You can search for your books by entering your NYU N# and birth date or by entering individual course information. We recommend you search using both channels to double-check your book list and make sure you receive as much information as possible.
If you have no books listed for your classes, do not worry! Summer term books are often not listed online until mid-May or later. Also, not all NYU professors order their books through the NYU Bookstore. You can always wait until the first day of class to receive the syllabus and list of required reading. Many students do this to determine for themselves which books they will purchase. Students also use other book sellers to get their books such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com.
The NYU Bookstore has used and new books as well as trade books and NYU merchandise. Be sure to stop by the Bookstore at 726 Broadway when you arrive on campus to stock up on NYU gear and souvenirs!

New York City is safe in comparison to other large urban areas, but it is still a city and there are some things you can do to make sure you keep yourself safe!
NYU Public Safety provides tips on safety in the city. Information about campus safety is also available online. Look over the information and be prepared while heading out on the town!
NYU Public Safety guards are posted in most NYU buildings and patrol the campus area at all times of the day and night. Buildings with green lights outside the main entrance have a guard on duty 24 hours a day. If you ever need help or assistance, ask a guard or call the on-campus emergency number: 212-998-2222.
