Campus Resources: Tools for Success

NYU has many resources to help you succeed in your classes, and for you to make the most of your time with us this summer! Remember that you will be considered a college student when you are here.  College students are expected to make use of the resources available to them, and to seek help when needed. Of course, we are always available to assist you, but in addition, here are samples of other great resources available to you at NYU.

The Academic Resource Center (ARC)
Located at 18 Washington Place, it is the place to go whenever you have questions about your courses or anything else related to academics while in Precollege. First and foremost, the ARC is home to us, NYU Precollege advising!

ARC Interior

The ARC also offers a variety of academic support resources, including peer tutoring through the University Learning Center, as well as referrals and directions to other academic resources around campus.  There are also computers, a printer, and a variety of study spaces for student use.

Bobst Library
As a Precollege student, you will have access to the striking, 12-story Elmer Holmes Bobst Library. Bobst is the flagship of a 10-library network consisting of over 6.3 million books,  5.7 million microforms, 500,000 government documents, and more than 41,000 linear feet of archives and manuscripts. They also provide access to thousands of electronic resources to the NYU community both on-site and around the world via the Internet.

Bobst Atrium

The research librarians at Bobst can also help you with your course papers and projects. They offer librarians specializing in particular subject areas–their job is to help you find the information you need in order to improve the quality of your academic work.

Along with all that, Bobst features a computer lab and laptop rental service. Other computer labs are also available around campus.

Bobst also features some great study spaces, including some areas that are open 24 hours!

The Wasserman Center for Career Development
It’s never too early to start thinking about your career! Whether you have a pretty good idea what line of work you want to get into or if you have absolutely no idea, career counselors at the Wasserman Center are happy to help you explore the possibilities, and talk about what you can do to stay or get on track.
