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.[3][4] Yu Lizhong also served as Party Committee Secretary of the university, but he never interfered in matters of academic freedom, according to Jeffrey Lehman.[5]


The inaugural class of 2017 moved in on August 11, 2013, and classes began in September 2013.[6] 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.[7] During the 2013–2014 academic year, NYU Shanghai students studied at East China Normal University while the official NYU campus in Pudong was built.[8] The Pudong campus was completed in the summer of 2014. Students moved into the new building at the start of the fall 2014 semester. Currently, the NYU Shanghai campus in Pudong serves NYU Shanghai students, study abroad students from New York, Abu Dhabi, and non-NYU affiliated colleges across the globe, as well as a select number of NYU law students.

NYU Shanghai's logo is adapted from NYU's torch logo, using the top half of the torch to form the petals of a magnolia flower, the official flower of Shanghai. The logo is meant to represent NYU's footing in Shanghai. [9]

Since late summer of 2014, NYU Shanghai has been based in Pudong, Shanghai, at 1555 Century Ave. The main campus is contained in a single building, the Academic Center, a new 15-story building with two underground floors.[11] The dorms are in Shanghai's Jinqiao neighborhood, north of the campus and also in Pudong. Students travel between the Academic Center and the dorms via the subway or on NYU shuttle buses.[12] There is also the academic library that offers virtual and in-person reference services. The collection relies heavily on e-content.


NYU Shanghai's mascot is a purple qilin designed by a student and decided by a popular vote, beating out other designs including a panda, dragon, lion, and original creature named Spark. This mascot is fitting for NYU Shanghai, as

"The qilin symbolizes serenity, luck, and prosperity, and is usually depicted covered in flames—not too far off from NYU Shanghai’s magnolia flower logo, composed of four NYU torches.

The qilin, as a patchwork creature of many animals forming a new being, also reflects the NYU Shanghai environment—a community of unique and talented individuals working and living in harmony." [13]

NYU Shanghai offers competitive sports teams for badminton, basketball, fencing, flag football, soccer, and volleyball, competing against local universities and high schools in various leagues and city-sponsored events. [14] NYU Shanghai also offers recreational activities such as yoga retreats, outdoor hikes, go-karting, and basketball tournaments,[15] as well as semester-long group fitness classes including yoga, aerobics, cardio, strength conditioning, tai chi, and various dance classes such as traditional Chinese dance, K-pop dance, hip-hop dance, and salsa. These fitness classes meet weekly and offerings change from semester to semester. [16]
