The campus

Our Center in New York State is on the campus of our university partner Canisius.

Canisius is a Jesuit, Catholic university. It is also the premier private university in Western New York State and consistently ranks highly for its strong academic teaching, extended student support and good value.

Canisius is located between the historic Hamlin Park neighborhood and Delaware Park in the city of Buffalo, N.Y., which boasts two major league sports teams and a host of businesses, employers, arts and culture. Nearby are two Great Lakes, the city of Toronto, and one of the world’s greatest attractions, Niagara Falls.

The 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The tunnels serve a practical use—they keep students and staff warm through Western New York winters. But there’s more to it than that. In these tunnels, vibrantly decorated by all kinds of posters and messages, advertising student clubs and societies, events and concerts, people meet up, become friends and keep more easily connected.

The campus above and around the tunnels has been transformed in recent years. More than $150 million in capital investments have been made to eight major residence halls and the newly opened Science Hall.

Canisius sits in the one of the safest neighborhoods of Buffalo and is patrolled day and night by the college’s department of public safety.
