Study Interior Design with the college that does it best.


No matter how much experience you have in interior design—a few Pinterest boards or a decades-long career—NYSID is the place to take your passion to the next level. Here’s why:

Our sole focus on interior design gives you—and our entire faculty and staff—the freedom to learn and do what we love most. It also makes our alumni network a career powerhouse unlike any other.

When they’re not on campus in the design epicenter that is NYC (or logging in remotely from home!), our students are in Florence, Nantucket, Palm Springs, London, Prague, Shanghai, or Paris—studying everything from contemporary design to interior gardens.

We’ve been supporting students as they launch careers in interior design for 100+ years. We’ve helped the industry evolve, we work with fantastic industry partners, and our guest speakers are renowned for their expertise. Simply put, those in the know, know NYSID.

Our faculty are principals of their own first and practicing designers at places like Gensler, HOK, Perkins&Will, and Rockwell Group. Something else they share in common: the belief that interior design has the power to improve human welfare.
