Social Media at NYU
NYU understands that digital devices are increasingly a part of our students’ lives, and has invested in social media on a wide variety of platforms. Some of the most popular include:
NYU Mobile App
Includes news, events, job postings, volunteer opportunities, shuttle map, campus map, and a directory.
NYU Human Resources uses LinkedIn to recruit for open positions, and has over 22,000 followers.
There are about 150 NYU locations on Foursquare that people check into. Aside from the built-in gaming elements that Foursquare brings, there are additional perks, such as learning about special deals in the dining halls and winning prizes for checking in. Check into your building or classroom to see what special tips and tricks are available.
The NYU YouTube channel includes a speaker series, open education lectures, admissions/recruiting information, and commencement ceremonies.
The NYU Facebook page has been steadily growing over the years and has over 150,000 likes. This large audience has proved especially useful during recent disasters, and ended up being the fastest way to update the NYU community and track and filter concerns during Hurricane Sandy.

Global Storytellers are NYU students from all walks of life studying in Abu Dhabi, Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, New York, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, Sydney, Tel Aviv, or Washington D.C. Their stories are curated in real time by our Global Editors, students in New York committed to sharing the best glimpses of life across the global network.
