Student Life

Welcome to the Office of Student Life at NYU Shanghai. It is my great pleasure and privilege to serve as your Dean and to introduce you to the many programs and opportunities administered by the dedicated Student Life staff.


NYU Shanghai is a dynamic community, ever changing, but steadfastly committed to our core values of "curiosity, rigor, integrity, respect, harmony, responsibility and deep engagement with all humanity." Our goal in Student Life is to create an environment that allows our stated values to flourish and that encourages everyone, but most especially, you, our students, to be successful in your individual endeavors.

To accomplish this goal we need everyone's commitment to our community. I ask you to engage fully with your classmates, faculty and staff, and with wider Shanghai community, offering as much of yourself as you are able. You will be enriched immeasurably.

Our student life team is here to support you, but the choices you make are your own. Please take a little time to explore this website and become familiar with our staff and the services and opportunities available to you.

I look forward to getting to know you all as you move through the next four years. I am available to talk to you about whatever is on your mind, at any time.
