The main goal was achieving a truly international, global network university — could be furthered through the establishment of NYU Abu Dhabi.
Both parties are committed to building a U.S.- style, research-focused educational 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.
For 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.
The student body of NYU Abu Dhabi is of diverse national, linguistic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The student body is recruited worldwide, and includes students from the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the United States.
