Student Life

  • Like New York itself, Parsons never sleeps. The school is animated by a vision of progressive creativity and social activism and energized by its kinetic urban environment. Parsons is where ambition, ingenuity, and collaboration tirelessly converge.

    Parsons Resources

    Parsons students have access to the Making Center, a collaborative making space comprising extensive studio facilities and professionally staffed model, fabrication, and print shops, including rapid prototyping, photography, and imaging labs and metalworking, jewelry, and woodworking facilities.

    In addition to offering individual program facilities, Parsons provides resources, including design libraries, computer labs, and galleries and exhibition facilities, that are available to all Parsons students.

    New School Services

    These are supplemented by shared New School facilities, including residence halls, cafeterias, and libraries, as well as an array of student services, ranging from health care to co-curricular and student development programs.

    New York Life

    Everyone should live in New York City at least once. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, Parsons students live, work, and dream in one of the world’s great cities. It is Parsons' most important classroom.
