Location and Logistics
The Institute begins with team-building activities on Sunday, July 13, 2014, and concludes by the evening of Friday, July 25, 2014.
Workshops will be held at NYU Wagner in the Puck Building, a historic building in lower Manhattan.
Housing is included in the Institute tuition, and participants will stay in an NYU dormitory. Each participant will be placed in a double-occupancy dorm room with another participant of the same gender. A limited number of single-occupancy rooms are available for an additional $370, though a single room cannot be guaranteed. If you need a single-occupancy room, please mark the appropriate space on the payment form.
Housing is available for check-in between 3:00pm and 8:00pm on Saturday, July 12, and participants must check out on Saturday, July 26, by 11:00am.
Each residence hall is staffed by a full-time Residence Hall Director, who is assisted by a staff of specially trained student employees. Each residence hall also has 24-hour security provided by the NYU Department of Public Safety. All residents will receive a temporary ID card upon checking in and are required to present this ID card upon entry into the residence hall. Institute participants will be accompanied by student coordinators, who will guide the group to the site visits, organize night activities, and stay with students in the dorms.
Travel to New York City
The closest airports are New York’s LaGuardia (LGA) and John F. Kennedy (JFK) airports. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the airport.
