Queen's Court (1845, 1940)

Population: Freshmen

Queen's Court Residential College a tightly-knit community of 150 students, was established to assist in the integration of first year students into the University and New York City communities. Its inception in 1987 came in response to a felt need for a first year residence that would embody the best qualities of a Jesuit education: a devotion to learning, a respect for tradition, and a commitment to community living.

The three buildings that form Queen's Court - St. John's Hall, St. Robert's Hall, and Bishop's Hall - are steeped in the history and traditions of the University. St. John's Hall was built in 1844 as the seminary of the Archdiocese of New York. Later, in 1860, the building was joined with the other early campus buildings as part of St. John's College. The name Fordham University was adopted by the institution in 1907. Bishop's Hall and St. Robert's Hall were built in 1940.

All three halls are co-ed, with wings being all male or all female with community bathrooms. Each room in Bishop's Hall has its own bathroom.
