About Canisius College

Canisius College is the premier private university in Western New York, one of 28 Jesuit, Catholic colleges in the nation, and is consistently ranked among the top regional colleges in the Northeast. Founded in 1870 by German Jesuits, Canisius College is named for St. Peter Canisius, a renowned Dutch educator and one of the original members of the Society of Jesus. What began in a single building in downtown Buffalo now consists of 56 buildings located on 72 acres in a residential neighborhood in North-Central Buffalo.

Campus information

Our 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The underground network runs from Dugan Hall to Old Main, from Street Side Café to Bouwhuis Library. The tunnels serve a practical use—they keep us warm through Western New York winters. But there’s more to it than that. They’re vibrant. You can’t walk 10 feet without hearing a welcoming ‘hello.’ Bright posters adorn the walls—invitations for upcoming events. Friendships form on the pathways to class. Snacks are shared. Courses are taught. Clubs rally. The tunnels keep us connected, in more ways than one.

The campus above and around the tunnels has been transformed in recent years. More than $150 million in capital investments have been made to eight major residence halls and the newly opened Science Hall.

Canisius sits in the one of the safest neighborhoods of Buffalo and is patrolled day and night by the college’s department of public safety.

Canisius College is located between the historic Hamlin Park neighborhood and Delaware Park in the city of Buffalo, N.Y.


Freshman and Sophomore students are required to live on campus unless they commute from their parents' homes.  Housing for first-year students is available in Bosch and Frisch residence halls. Housing preference is assigned based on deposit date.
