Four New York City Locations, One University
Our students study at our four campuses: Wilf Campus (500 West 185th Street), Israel Henry Beren Campus (245 Lexington Avenue) and Brookdale Center (55 Fifth Avenue) in Manhattan, and the Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus in the Bronx (Eastchester Road and Morris Park Avenue). The undergraduate schools offer a unique dual curriculum comprising Jewish studies and liberal arts and sciences courses, and our graduate and affiliate schools offer tremendous opportunities for graduate and professional studies. While part of a multifaceted University community, each school retains the intimate character of a smaller institution.
