Classroom Observation

Do you wish to observe a class at NYU Silver to experience our close-knit community, rigorous coursework, and meet current MSW students and faculty? If so, please complete this form and allow us two weeks to place you into a class. Please note that only accepted students are given this opportunity and you are limited to one class observation.


NYU offers walking tours of our Washington Square, New York City campus specifically for prospective graduate and professional students. Learn about the many schools, colleges, centers, and institutes that make up the university and get a glimpse of what life is like for students.

Tours take place on most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. You may register for a campus tour here. Please note: Registration is required.

Before or after the tour you are invited to speak with an admissions counselor during our drop-in advisement hours held on Fridays from 11:00am - 2:00pm in the Admissions Office (1st floor) at the Silver School of Social Work building. If you wish to meet with a admissions counselor on another day, please e-mail us at silver.admissions@nyu.edu to arrange an appointment.
