Our community extends beyond our campus—we are a part of New York, and New York is a part of us.

New York City isn’t just for tourists. More than 660,000 students go to college in NY, taking advantage of the variety of culture, internships, and entertainment the city has to offer. It's also the perfect setting for a Jesuit education, one that stresses fearless engagement—with profound ideas, with communities near and far, and with each other.

As a Fordham student, you'll have the chance to see a Van Gogh as part of a class trip to the Met or write a paper about the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage. But you'll also get to explore the city like any New Yorker: You might see a performance at the New York City Ballet or get discount Broadway theater tickets, try authentic Chinese food downtown or Greek food in Queens, ride your bike along the Hudson or wonder at the beauty of Manhattanhenge.

Learn more about how our students engage directly with our New York City neighborhoods in the Bronx and Manhattan.
