NYC Growth and Expansion
November 1, 2019
Update on the New York City Campus
It’s an exciting time to enroll and to be a student at New York Tech! Our growth and expansion plans prove our dedication to offering the optimal resources and facilities to support our community of doers, makers, and innovators and to foster a culture of excellence for our students and faculty.
We are committed to serving students in the New York region for many years to come. Our expansion into new, advanced facilities in New York City, will allow us to be even more student centered and better poised for growth. Our plans will meet the needs of current and prospective students, ranging from undergraduate to professional learners, and provide vital space and new state-of-the-art facilities for teaching, learning, research, scholarship, and student life.
Projected Timeline and Plan:
- New York Institute of Technology has entered into a contract for the sale of our properties at 1849 and 1855 Broadway in New York City, and we will relocate most of our programs to a new New York City location.
- For the new location, we are seeking between 150,000 and 200,000 square feet, which will provide us with significantly more usable space than we currently have in our midtown location. It will be attractive, modern, highly functional, and accommodating to students, staff, and faculty—again, our strategy is to focus on growth.
- A team of faculty and staff have visited potential new sites in Queens (Long Island City area) and lower Manhattan. Each site is within three miles of our current midtown location and easily accessible by public transportation. Both neighborhoods would provide us with new state-of-the-art facilities, allow us to be closer to large existing and new student populations, and enable us to grow.
- A decision will be made by the end of December 2019 regarding the location of the additional campus, at which point we will begin to plan and fit the space out for our needs. Both undergraduate and graduate programs will be offered and supported at the new New York City site. We will retain some of our current midtown space which will house executive education and other post-graduate degree and certification programs.
- In the summer of 2021, we will plan to move into the new space so that classes can begin in September 2021.
