We encourage all prospective students to visit NYSID during their college search. A campus visit is the best way to experience the college’s culture and ask questions about our programs and community.

Information sessions and tours are held throughout the year and are led by our admissions staff and students. Please note, times and availability are subject to change. Sign up for a scheduled tour or make an appointment for a time that works for you.


Undergraduate Tour, 170 East 70 Street: Wednesdays at 1 PM and Fridays at 12 PM
Graduate Center Tour, 401 Park Avenue South: Mondays at 3 PM and Tuesdays at 1 PM

Call the Admissions Office at 212-472-1500, ext. 205 or e-mail admissions@nysid.edu to sign up. Pre-registration is required. Sessions start promptly. Please arrive at least 5 minutes to start time to check in.

If you cannot attend a scheduled tour time, admissions staff are available at the uptown campus located at 170 East 70 Street, Monday through Friday between 9 AM-5 PM for a one-on-one counseling appointment. Please call or email to schedule.
