Serving Inwood, Washington Heights and the Bronx communities, CUNY in the Heights, administered by BMCC, brings more educational opportunities to neighborhoods by creating multiple pathways to degrees and careers with family-sustaining wages.
The success of the re-imagined CUNY in the Heights/BMCC initiative will hinge on community engagement—seeking input from local community leaders (elected officials/government, employers, education, and non-profit community organizations) regarding what their needs are and what we can offer.
BMCC has begun to collaborate with Hostos and Bronx Community College to bring much needed workforce development programing to complement BMCC offerings. BMCC is also collaborating with CUNY’s Continuing Education team to leverage workforce and academic opportunities for student development, specifically around Internships and employer engagement.
As BMCC moves forward with plans for the re-imagined CUNY in the Heights, updates will be made available on this website.
Renovation to Expand Education Opportunities
During Spring Semester 2021, CUNY in the Heights remains closed for renovation in order to improve its facilities and learning environment. The renovation is part of BMCC’s on-going efforts to bring more educational opportunities to neighborhoods by creating multiple pathways to degrees and careers with family-sustaining wages.
The renovation project is an expansion of this facility that will double the number of existing classrooms and triple the number of available classroom seats. The expanded facility has been designed to adopt the principles of Universal Design in order to meet the accessibility needs of all, while creating a physical environment that is functional and aesthetically pleasing.
The upper level expansion will include amenities such as, an open student lounge with access to natural light, a quiet study area and three (3) state of the art flexible classrooms that provide access to computer stations at every desk, with the added flexibility of a standard instructional setup, allowing the students to put away the monitor for additional desk area and an unobstructed view of the instructor.
During the CUNY in the Heights renovation, students can take advantage of courses offered at the Tribeca-Main Campus and at Off-site Programs.
