New York University first established a campus in Paris in September 1969, installing a small group of students and faculty in the offices of the Franco-American Fulbright Commission at 9 rue Chardin in the 16th arrondissement.[3] Seeking more spacious facilities, the campus subsequently moved to the top floor of the France-Amériques centre on the avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 8th arrondissement. In 1974 the university acquired a standalone house at 56 rue de Passy, leased from the family of philosopher Jean-Marie Benoist.[4] In 2014 the university purchased the former facilities of the École spéciale des travaux publics and moved to 57 boulevard Saint-Germain in the Latin Quarter of the 5th arrondissement.[5]

Academic ProgramsEdit

NYU Paris 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 Paris rather than at NYU's campus in New York City.[6]

NYU Paris courses are conducted in partnership with the faculties and schools of New York University in New York City.[7] Students may also take courses in the University of Paris system and at Sciences Po.

The NYU Department of French offers five distinct master's degree programs at NYU Paris.[8]

NYU Paris hosts the New York University School of Law program in European law.[9]
