Easily Accessible

Located around the bustling streets of lower Manhattan, BMCC is one of the most conveniently located colleges in New York. Our students actively participate in the artistic communities of Tribeca and SoHo, the dynamic financial district, and the center of local government at City Hall. Plus, we have a satellite campus at CUNY in The Heights. Students thrive on the surrounding communities and cultures, as they build their network and broaden their horizons.
