Located in the heart of downtown NYC, students actively participate in the artistic communities of Tribeca and SoHo, the dynamic downtown financial district, and the center of New York City government at City Hall.The main campus of the college is situated on 4.28 acres of land in a building that was designed with the Hudson River harbor in mind — shaped like a ship with its helm pointed to sea. Spanning four blocks from Chambers Street to North Moore Street, It’s equivalent to the Empire State Building lying on its side; it is the hub of life at the college.
In addition to the 71 classrooms, eight seminar rooms, numerous laboratories and three lecture halls, the campus library, named after the African-American labor leader and social activist A. Philip Randolph (1889-1979), contains about 120,000 volumes of books and reference titles, 350 print magazine/journal subscriptions, over 28,000 electronic journals, magazines, and newspapers, 10,000 electronic books, and 18,000 reels of microfilm.
