New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) is a private, non-profit college focused exclusively on interior design. Primarily known for its highly ranked programs, the College offers certificate, three undergraduate, and four master's degree programs for students at all stages of their careers — whether they are just becoming familiar with the discipline, considering a career change, or looking to deepen knowledge in a particular area.
Founded in 1916, it is located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of New York City. Located in various buildings on Madison Avenue and in Midtown, NYSID eventually settled into its current location on East 70th Street in 1994. In 2010, the College opened its LEED-Platinum Graduate Center on Park Avenue South and 28th Street.
