  • Our undergraduategraduate, and student teams host a wide range of admission events throughout the year. You can learn all about our programs, the process of applying or transferring, how to prepare a portfolio or audition repertoire, and life inside our classrooms and on our New York City campus.

    For the fall 2021 semester, most of our admission events will be held virtually. Our in-person offerings will be limited to pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and single-family campus tours. Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus or meet with Admission. Those without appointments will not be able to enter the Welcome Center. 

    Our ability to accommodate in-person visitors this fall is extremely limited due to COVID-19 precautions at the university and in New York City. In-person tours and appointments are currently available on a first-come, first-served basis through October 29. Additional dates and times for November and December will be posted by October 15. If you are unable to visit us on campus, we encourage you to take our virtual tour and connect with us through one of our many additional online events. 

  • Directions to Campus

    Parsons tours, information sessions, and workshops begin at the Welcome Center, which is located at 72 Fifth Avenue (on the corner of 13th Street and Fifth Avenue) in New York City's Greenwich Village. Most students use public transportation to get around campus — we encourage visitors to do the same whenever possible. Use the links below to plan your visit to and around New York City.

    Driving

    Traffic on Fifth Avenue is one way southbound; traffic on 13th Street is one way westbound. For a guide to New York City parking, visit NYC.com. There are several pay parking garages along 13th Street and in the area. There are also on-street parking meters nearby, but on-street parking is scarce on weekdays.
