Yu Lizhong, former president of the East China Normal University (ECNU), was named Chancellor of NYU Shanghai. Jeffrey S. Lehman, former president of Cornell University and dean of the University of Michigan Law School, was named Vice Chancellor.[2]

Inaugural Class

The inaugural class of 2017 moved in on August 11, 2013, and classes began in September of 2013.[3] Of the class of 294 students, 51% came from The People's Republic of China, with the remaining 49% coming from other countries around the world.[4] During the 2013-2014 academic year, NYU Shanghai students studied at East China Normal University while the official NYU campus in Pudong was built.[5] The Pudong campus is to be completed in the summer of 2014. Students will move into the new building for the start of the fall 2014 semester.

Research Centre

  • NYU-ECNU Center for Computational Chemistry at NYU Shanghai[6]
  • NYU-ECNU Institute of Brain and Cognitive Science at NYU Shanghai
  • NYU-ECNU Institute for Social Development at NYU Shanghai
  • NYU-ECNU Institute of Mathematical Sciences at NYU Shanghai


Starting in the late summer of 2014, NYU Shanghai will be based in Pudong, Shanghai, at 1555 Century Ave. The Academic Center, a new 15 story building with two underground floors, is set to be completed in Summer 2014.[7] The dorms will be renovated from purchased apartment blocks approximately a fifteen minute drive away from the academic building, but with NYU-specific shuttles running in between.[8] There is also the academic library that offers virtual and in-person reference services. The collection relies heavily on e-content.
