About John Jay College of Criminal Justice

Founded in 1964, John Jay College of Criminal Justice is one of the nation’s most prestigious liberal arts institutions.  The theme of justice is at the heart of each program, ranging across the arts, sciences and humanities. The breadth and diversity of scholarship at John Jay promises a rich learning experience to our students. 

Campus information

The new building includes more than 600,000 square feet of state-of-the-art “smart” classrooms, forensic labs, moot court room, conference center and simulator labs – all with a 100-percent WiFi collegiate environment..

The main entrance opens into the stunning Kroll Atrium that anchors the cascading spaces both horizontally and vertically, with a series of grand staircases, escalators, lounges, and gathering areas. At the heart of the College is the outdoor Jay Walk, a football field-sized landscaped rooftop commons five stories above the sidewalk. The Jay Walk, which was named by students, is the College’s first actual campus green and the only college campus park in Midtown Manhattan. Its greenery provides an oasis of natural beauty in the midst of the dynamism that is John Jay. The Atrium and the Jay Walk are buzzing with energy and vibrancy when the semester is in session, especially during “Community Hour” (1:40-2:40 p.m.), when student clubs and activities are in full swing, or when groups of students gather to carry on their class discussions or just hang out over lunch.

The Lloyd Sealy Library houses one of the world’s premier criminal justice libraries. With unique holdings of 440,000 books, periodicals, microforms and digital collections, the Library supports the general education and curricula aims of the College and provides opportunities for extensive research in the social sciences, criminal justice, forensic psychology, forensic science and related fields.

The John Jay Bloodhounds enjoy topnotch athletics facilities on campus, including the newly renovated Doghouse gym and basketball court and the 25-yard swimming pool. They also have access to the USTA Tennis Center, MCU baseball park, and additional facilities on Randall’s Island.

John Jay is located in New York City on the west side of Manhattan near Lincoln Center and Central Park, and the City as a whole serves as an important extension of campus.
