CampusEdit

In 1994, Villa La Pietra was bequeathed to New York University by Sir Harold Acton.[3]

Academic ProgramsEdit

NYU Florence hosts students from New York University's three degree-granting campuses in New York City, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, as well as study-abroad students from its partner universities in the United States.

Select first-year students in the NYU Liberal Studies core program and Global Liberal Studies program may spend their first year of studies at NYU Florence rather than at NYU's campus in New York City.[4]
