About St. John Fisher College

St. John Fisher College is an independent, liberal arts institution in the Catholic tradition of American higher education. Guided since its inception by the educational philosophy of the Congregation of St. Basil, the College emphasizes liberal learning both for students in traditional academic disciplines and for those in more directly career-oriented fields. In keeping with the openness that is characteristic of its Basilian heritage, Fisher welcomes qualified students, faculty and staff regardless of religious or cultural background.

As an institution of higher learning, we engage our students in the quest for knowledge and truth, believing that such engagement will equip them to make sound judgments as individuals, family members, and citizens. We provide individual guidance to students as they strive for academic excellence and develop values that will guide them in meaningful and productive lives. Our dual emphasis on intellectual and personal growth derives from our belief that learning is valuable for its own sake, for the sake of those who learn, and for the sake of society as a whole.

Campus information

Fisher's campus is situated on 154 park-like acres—a beautiful setting for 26 modern buildings and a warm, friendly campus community.

The College offers 35 academic majors in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, business, education, and nursing, as well as 11 pre-professional programs. 

St. John Fisher College is located 6 miles southeast of Rochester, NY, in the suburb of Pittsford. The NYS Thruway runs south of the city.


There are eight residential areas located on the St. John Fisher College campus. Dorsey, Founders, Haffey, Keough, Michaelhouse, Murphy, Murray, and Ward Halls are our traditional Residence Halls. Each Residence Hall houses from 50 to 200 students.

While all buildings have unique qualities, all share common traits. Laundry facilities, comfortable television and study lounges with wireless access, and kitchen areas are conveniently located and available in all buildings on campus. All rooms are furnished with a bed, desk, desk chair, wardrobe/closet, and dresser for each student. All of our Residence Halls are non-smoking.
