As of March 13th, the Center for Student Life Staff who manage the Parent Helpline, are working remotely until further notice. For updates on facilities, operations, academics, and other information during this time, please visit the Coronavirus webpage. Thank you for your patience and stay safe.
Parent Resources at the Center for Student Life in New York is here to assist you with the transition of your student from year to year by serving as a resource as you navigate the many offices and services available throughout the university. There is no doubt you will have questions and concerns as your student makes their college journey. We’re here to help with those questions.
At NYU, we understand your desire to be there to assist and provide for your student, and understand how crucial a role you play in their life. However, our goal is to assist you in helping your student navigate the resources available to them that will help him/her develop as a young adult and make the daily decisions that are a part of their new life.
We see the parent’s role to now be one of support (not just financially) – not doing for them – but helping them to do for themselves. And when they cannot, to know where to ask for help. As a parent, you can support your student by empowering them to make new friends and stay on top of coursework. You can also provide support by directing your student to a variety of University resources when needed and encouraging your student to reach out for assistance.
