Get on the list

Swim is being launched at NYU on an invitation-only basis to keep it legit. Get on the list and we will get to you very soon. Note that you need to get on the list with your NYU email.

Swim is not affiliated with the administration of NYU in any way and is not looking to substitute the official communication vehicles between the university and its students. Swim also does not have or seek access to lists of NYU students. The only way to register in the app is by being invited by another NYU student.
