Life in the Old University Building

A sketch of one of the Old University Building's Janitors.

By Celeste Brewer (GSAS ’16)

NYU’s first permanent home, the University Building, was the first building constructed specifically for the University, and was designed in a Gothic Revival style inspired by medieval English collegiate buildings. The Building was dedicated in 1837 with great fanfare, and demolished in 1894 with much regret. What was it like to live, work, and study in the University Building?

Conversations on Racial Diversity & Equity at NYU

Image of the Kimmel Center.

Over the past year, racial diversity, equity, and inclusion on college campuses across the United States have been central in the national headlines. As NYU continues to make positive strides in these areas, the alumni community is often left unaware of the ways that the University is supporting its diverse community. This program is meant to be an update for a cross-section of alumni to hear firsthand from administrators, students, and fellow alumni on the many ways the University is supporting its underrepresented communities. For more information and to RSVP, click here.
