NYU Shanghai

Founded in 2012, NYU Shanghai is China's first Sino-US research university and the third degree-granting campus of the NYU Global Network. 

The newly constructed NYU Shanghai campus is located in the Pudong district of downtown Shanghai. Fifteen stories tall, with two additional levels underground, the academic building contains 55,000 square meters (550,000 square feet) which houses an expansive library, with an extensive physical and electronic collection with access to NYU’s global library resources; a 300-seat auditorium; a 150-person colloquium space; a theater, music, and arts hall; and kitchen and dining facilities.

Generously equipped with classrooms capable of accommodating varying class sizes, dedicated floors for teaching and practical laboratories for various sciences, intimate study spaces, and faculty and administrative offices, the building will function as a campus unto itself and as the center of a thriving academic community.

Wireless IT services and a robust IT infrastructure ensure that the building, and by extension, the students and faculty, remain fully connected to the NYU global network.

Shanghai is a place where soaring sky-scrapers cast shadows on old lane houses, where one-man rickshaws wait for passengers outside the station for one of the world’s fastest trains, and where fine cuisine from around the world and 50 cent fried rice are available on the same street. With the constant interplay of change and development in a historical setting, Shanghai is truly an exciting place to be and lends itself to a vibrant student life in and outside of the classroom.

Shanghai is the largest city in China, with best estimates placing the population at 16 to 24 million inhabitants. The city has a truly unique history, even though it could be considered relatively young when compared with Beijing and other cities. This characteristic, however, is central to the framework that makes Shanghai what it is today. Besides being China’s economic center, it is also an increasingly popular tourist destination with more than three million tourists annually, a number that is on the rise.
