Directions to NYU Shanghai


The NYU Shanghai Academic Building

NYU Shanghai is located at 1555 Century Avenue, in Lujiazui, Shanghai’s thriving financial district.  Some of the world’s most iconic buildings - the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Shanghai Tower, and the Shanghai World Financial Center - are down the road and the campus is within walking distance of popular restaurants, shopping malls, stadiums and playing fields. 

Custom-built in 2012, 1555 Century Avenue serves as NYU Shanghai’s main campus and thriving intellectual center, and is easily accessible by subway, bus, car, and bicycle.  The 15-story Academic Building includes large lecture halls and intimate seminar rooms, a spacious cafeteria and hip café, a 300-seat auditorium and state-of-the-art science laboratories, faculty and administrative offices, and an expansive library housing an extensive physical and electronic collection that is networked to NYU’s global library.  Wireless IT services and a robust IT infrastructure ensure that the building and, by extension, the students and faculty, remain fully connected to the NYU global network.
