Don’t leave for New York without your arrival-cheat-sheet! It contains helpful information about navigating the airport, getting to your housing assignment, and NYU New York contact information. Please provide a copy of this document to your family.
Here are some other things to keep in mind:
- Know the time difference between your hometown and New York, and discuss a communication plan with your friends and family
- Know what to expect for meal costs in your host location. See the NYU New York Study Away website for the cost of a few items and be sure to access the pre-departure budgeting module.
- Check the exchange rate for your host country’s currency regularly
- Purchase any necessary voltage convertors and/or adaptors.
And remember these tips from our First Time Traveler Post. (They’re actually quite good for everyone!)
