Student Activities

Participating in student government or a student club or organization, volunteering in a service project, or attending a student leadership program are just a few ways to discover new ideas, learn about different cultures and interests, develop skills, and contribute to the community.

During orientation, students are introduced to opportunities to get involved on campus. All students are encouraged to join at least one club or activity at NYU Shanghai. For information about getting involved with activities outside the classroom, contact the NYU Shanghai Student Engagement Center at

All official NYU Shanghai student clubs receive funding and support from Student GovernmentTo learn more about the many student groups on campus, see the Clubs and Organizations page. The Office of Student Life also facilitates a variety of initiatives and programs that help break down barriers between people of different backgrounds, providing a groundwork for the culture of understanding that NYU Shangahi strives to embody. Further information about leaership and diversity programs is shared with students during orientation.

In addition to the many student clubs and organizations on campus, NYU Shanghai students provides many opportunities for engaging with the local community and communities across China in areas of education, environmental protection, and more. For more information, see the Community Engagement page.
