Go Local Undergraduate Students

Welcome to NYU Shanghai!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our unique community of Chinese and international students, faculty and staff. The first day of classes is September 14, 2020. Most NYU Go Local students will take classes and study at one of two “Go Local spaces” near the NYU Shanghai campus in Pudong. Go Local undergraduate students will take classes at the WeWork Shinmay space at 999 South Pudong Road, and Go Local graduate students will take classes at the WeWork Fuhui space. Some Go Local classes will also be held at the NYU Shanghai Academic Building at 1555 Century Avenue.

Orientation: All students must attend an in-person orientation to gain access to all NYU Shanghai facilities, including Go Local spaces. Scheduled orientations for Go Local First Years include: August 29 and 30 and September 5 and 6 with a make-up session on September 12. Upperclass Go Local students will attend half-day sessions on September 3rd/4th and 10th/11th with a make up session on September 12.
