Directions to Washington Square Campus

New York City’s highways, bridges, tunnels, major airports, extensive mass transit system, and miles of sidewalks make getting around relatively simple. With a good street, subway, and bus map; a few helpful telephone numbers; and a few dollars in change, you can go almost anywhere in the five boroughs of New York City.

For directions to the Washington Square Campus, call the NYU Information Center, 212-998-INFO (212-998-4636) or check the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) web site.

The main building of the Tisch School of the Arts is located at 721 Broadway, between Waverly Place and Washington Place, just south of Eighth Street.
