Housing and Campus Life at the Summer Leaders Academy

The application for Summer 2024 is now closed. Please check back on December 1st for information regarding Summer 2025. Thank you.

Housing at Queen's Court

Residential students will live in Queen’s Court Residential College, one of the most popular residence halls on campus. Over the summer, living in Queen’s Court will give you just the right amount of independence to explore college life. 

There are typically two students per room. Resident program coordinators are there to help, provide guidance, and lead social activities. The residence halls have live-in University staff and 24-hour security.

Old-School Beauty

Most programs and activities will take place on Fordham University's Rose Hill Campus in the Bronx. Just 8 miles north of our Lincoln Center Campus in the heart of Manhattan, it may not be what you’re expecting from New York City. The 85-acre campus is renowned for its Gothic architecture and is bordered by the lush New York Botanical Garden with the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo just across the street.  


Ram Hospitality offers several meal options each day at the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses. Vegetarian and allergen-free foods are always available. Program tuition covers three meals per day for residents and lunches for commuters. Additional meals are available on a pay-as-you-go basis.


Fordham has a campus shuttle, the Ram Van, that provides reliable and safe transportation for students, staff, and faculty alike. Vans leave every half hour and are free to students taking class at another campus. Summer Leaders Academy participants who need to travel to Lincoln Center for class will be directed by program staff to the shuttles departing at 9:00 a.m. for Lincoln Center and 4:00 p.m. for the van back to Rose Hill.

The Ram Van will also provide free transportation throughout the session for off-campus excursions.
