  • Due to concerns about the novel coronavirus, The New School's Welcome Center is temporarily closed and all campus tours and on-site events have been suspended. We plan for the Welcome Center to reopen on August 30, when in-person classes resume, at which time we will offer limited pre-scheduled admission counseling appointments and single-family campus tours. Additional information about our in-person offerings for the fall will become available on our main visit page in mid-August. 

    Now and throughout the fall, we invite you to connect virtually with our Admission team through a series of online events and offerings. Experience our campus by taking our immersive virtual campus tour, learn more about our academic programs by registering for an online information session or webinar, or meet with our team at an upcoming school visit, college or graduate fair, open house, or student panel. We've worked hard to offer many opportunities for you to get a sense of the culture, coursework, and student life at our university.

  • 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.
