Finding Your Classes

To find the location of your classes, the first thing to do is to log into your NYUHome account, and pull up your class schedule via the Student Services Center in Albert. Your schedule will tell you where your classes are being held. Look up the building code to find out which building your class is in. Then, find your building on the NYU campus map. You can use the interactive map or download a PDF map with a key. Students taking classes at the Tandon School of Engineering can find directions to our Brooklyn campus online here.


You can also access a campus map (and more!) by downloading the NYU Mobile App.

Checks & Balances

Now that you’ve hopefully registered for your Fall in NY classes, it’s a good idea to check your class schedule and account balance. You can do both of these in Albert via NYUHome.


To check your account balance, click on the “Academics” tab in NYUHome. Then click on the bright pink “Student Center” link. Once you’re in your Student Center, locate the “Finances” tab, under which you can find “View Bursar Account.” This will bring you to your eSuite, where you can review or pay your account balance. More detailed instructions can be found on the Bursar’s website. Students applying for a consortium agreement between NYU and their home institution should submit this to NYU by July 15.  All students may contact the Bursar’s Office directly with further inquiries about their account.

To check your class schedule, follow the above instructions to access your Student Center. Your courses should automatically populate and look something like this:

If your courses do not automatically appear, click on the “My Class Schedule” link under “Academics,” select “Fall 2016″ and review your schedule! Use the Building Key Code and Campus Map to plot the locations of your courses. As always, if you have any questions about Fall in NY do not hesitate to contact the University Programs Team.
