Looking for urban campuses like NYU's - Any suggestions?

NYU stands out to me because of its urban campus and the opportunities that come with being in New York City. I'm intrigued by the idea of living in a city while studying. Are there other schools with a similar urban setting that I should consider adding to my college list?

Absolutely, there are many universities that offer the kind of urban setting like NYU. You should consider looking into schools such as Columbia University, which is also in New York City, offering a slightly more traditional campus feel while still being well-integrated into the city. Further afield, Boston University and Northeastern University in Boston provide an urban experience rich with historical roots and access to numerous industries. The University of Chicago is another great option with a strong urban setting albeit with a more Gothic architecture, compared to NYU's modern look. On the West Coast, the University of Southern California (USC) is nestled in Los Angeles and offers vibrant city life along with strong academic programs. When looking at these, consider the campus culture, available majors, and the unique opportunities each city may offer that aligns with your intended field of study. Don't forget to also factor in the cost of living in these cities, as it can be significantly higher than in other areas. Best of luck in your search!
