The John Jay College campus and local neighborhood is a thriving and productive place where students can focus on their studies, as well as participate in a variety of recreational and social activities.
John Jay’s campus is located along the east and west sides of Tenth Avenue from 56th Street to 59th Street with Haaren Hall, North Hall and Westport as its focal points. These buildings house the classrooms, administrative offices, labs and other special venues of the College. Its fitness and recreational facilities include a cardiovascular fitness center, tennis court, outdoor running track and an NCAA-regulation swimming pool. Haaren Hall also houses the 611-seat Gerald W. Lynch Theater, a state-of-the-art space that provides an auditorium for college events as well as a stage for professional theatre companies.
At John Jay, students are just a short walk from two of the world’s most renowned centers for music and dance – Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. This Westside neighborhood is dotted with dozens of cafes and coffee houses. On balmy spring days, Central Park beckons for anyone who wants to jog around the Reservoir or wander its shaded paths.
John Jay is also near the Time Warner Center, a 21st-century shopping and transportation hub where a MetroCard will take you downtown to Greenwich Village and the art galleries of Soho, uptown to the Museum of Natural History, the Cloisters and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, not to mention to Times Square, Broadway and even out to Coney Island’s boardwalk.
