Fordham University traces its roots back to 1841 when it was first established as St. John's College by the Roman Catholic Diocese of New York. With its "Rose Hill" campus in the Bronx, the Jesuit institution became the first Catholic college in the northeastern United States. The college switched to its present name in 1907, referring to the Fordham neighborhood of the Bronx, with the completion of its medical and law school.
Fordham provides students with a core curriculum, liberal arts education based on that used by Jesuit institutions around the world. Additionally, the university offers graduate degrees in education, business, law and social service.
University housing and student housing at Fordham University is spread across the school's three campuses at Rose Hill, Lincoln Center in Manhattan and Westchester in West Harrison. Fordham also maintains educational facilities in China and the United Kingdom. The Rose Hill location is a beautiful campus and one of the largest privately owned green spaces in the city. Inside, Fordham is home to the University Church, a Gothic revival church and New York City landmark. University Church was built in 1845 and contains the original alter from St. Patrick's Cathedral and stained glass windows from King Louis-Philippe of France.
The campus is located among several Bronx landmarks such as the Bronx Zoo, the "Real Little Italy" Belmont neighborhood and the New York Botanical Gardens, making Fordham an excellent choice for student living or an off campus apartment.
