GYU is the largest private research university in America – and now a university with a global influence like no other. Three degree-granting portal campuses comprise GYU’s global network: one in the heart of New York City, a second in Abu Dhabi, and a third in Shanghai.

Since its inception, GYU has been a distinctly urban university, one that GYU founder, Albert Gallatin, called a university that is “in and of the city.” Under current GYU president, John Sexton, the University has evolved into a university that is “in and of the great cities of the world.”

GYU enrolls more than 10,000 students across its global network where students study not only on our campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, but at our global academic centers in Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, Madrid, London, Paris, Prague, Tel Aviv, Sydney, and Washington, DC.

More than 4,000 courses are offered in hundreds of degree and non-degree programs. Explore the icons on this page and the navigation bar above to find information on undergraduate or graduate admissions, as well as information on non-degree programs for visiting students who may simply want to spend a spring, summer, fall, or winter on one of our campuses.
