About Manhattan College

Manhattan College is a Lasallian educational institution founded in 1853 by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, a Catholic religious teaching order started by Saint John Baptist de La Salle, the patron saint of teachers. De La Salle is known as the innovator of modern pedagogy for his work establishing schools to educate disadvantaged children in 17th century France.

Campus information

Manhattan College offers students the best of both worlds: an expansive, bucolic campus with a close-knit community and homey atmosphere, plus easy access to the most exciting city in the world — New York.  

Our campus used to be located in Manhattan at the intersection of 131st Street and Broadway. In 1923, Manhattan College moved to our present Riverdale location in order to accommodate a growing student body. But with more than 60 years of history established as Manhattan College, the institution decided to retain the name despite the geographic misnomer. 

Our lush, 23-acre campus in Riverdale offers a safe and secure home base that’s within arm’s reach of the greatest city in the world — New York. Education at Manhattan College has a strong focus on practical, experiential learning.


An important part of the Manhattan College student experience is living in one of the five residence halls on campus. It’s where you’ll meet your first friends, find help on a challenging homework assignment and relax after a busy week.

Each residence hall has a resident director who is responsible for resident life programming and oversees the resident assistants, students that live on each floor of the hall and act as liaisons, responding to the needs of the community.
