institution.
NYU Abu Dhabi is a residential research
university and a branch of NYU New York,
operated consistent with NYU New York's
academic quality and practices.
A highly selective liberal arts and sciences
college and a world center for advanced
research and scholarship — integrated with
each other and connected through
technology to NYU New York.

the first years of its existence, NYU Abu
Dhabi is located in the center of downtown
Abu Dhabi, near the Corniche waterfront, the
Abu Dhabi Cultural Center, and the new
Central Market.
 NYU Abu Dhabi is expected to move to the
Marina District of Saadiyat Island, 500 meters
off the coast of the main city of Abu Dhabi,
in the fall of 2014.
