Campuses and Locations
The Queens campus features broad lawns, handsome stone buildings and ultramodern student residence halls. Facilities include high-tech laboratory and classroom buildings; the main collections of our 1.7 million-volume Library; and state-of-the-art athletic facilities for students and our BIG EAST, Division I athletic teams.
The 16.5-acre campus features rolling lawns, apartment-style student residences and architectural styles that range from red-brick colonial to the strikingly modern. The campus is located in the residential Grymes Hill section of Staten Island, one of the five counties, or boroughs, that make up New York City.
Located in New York City, the Manhattan campus is easily accessible by mass transit. If you are traveling by car, the campus's location near the West Side Highway makes it easy to reach whether you are driving from upstate, the city's other boroughs, Long Island, New Jersey, or any of the area's major airports.
The campus, which the University established in 1995, combines the unique cultural resources of a great European capital with the world-class courses and faculty available at St. John’s.
St. John’s opened its Paris location in 2008 as the latest site for its growing Study Abroad programs. Since 1995, the University has maintained a campus in Rome, Italy, that serves students in the Rome Semester and Discover the World Europe courses.
The Oakdale campus combines the benefits of a St. John's University education with the convenience and beauty of studying at a magnificent former estate on Long Island's south shore.
