About

History

Manhattan College was founded in 1853 by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, a Catholic teaching order started by Saint John Baptist de La Salle. The Lasallian mission drives our focus on quality education for all and service to our neighbors in need. Our picturesque campus is located in The Bronx, a 35-minute subway ride from the heart of Manhattan. 

Education

The mission of Manhattan College is to provide a contemporary, person-centered educational experience that prepares graduates for lives of personal development, professional success, civic engagement, and service to their fellow human beings.

Research

The College pursues this mission through programs that integrate a broad liberal education with concentration in specific disciplines in the arts and sciences or with professional preparation in business, education and engineering.

Career

Manhattan College is ranked as one of the top schools in the nation for having graduates that get jobs and earn high salaries. Career preparation starts freshman year and continues past graduation with our career services for students and alumni.

Services

Student services

The Business Services Office oversees the several operational and contract services on campus, including the bookstore, mail room and print shop, conference services, dining, housekeeping, purchasing and telecommunications.

Housing services

We offer a variety of housing options to choose from and undergraduate housing is guaranteed for all four years.

Each of our residence halls has a resident director, a staff member who coordinates residence life programming and oversees the resident assistants, better known as RAs. RAs are students, typically upperclassmen, who live on each floor of the hall and serve as a liaison and resource for the residents. RAs plan regular activities, like game night and trips to popular New York City destinations, to create a bonded community on their floor.
