John Jay Students sitting at the Jay Walk
The best way to experience John Jay is to see us in action. Our bustling, state-of-the-art campus draws its energy and character from the city it calls home. As the world’s commercial and cultural epicenter, New York City offers unparalleled social and professional opportunities to students, residents and visitors.  The campus is near New York’s most accessible transportation hubs, including Penn Station, Grand Central, and Port Authority, so visit us today – it’s easy!


Information Sessions and campus tours are a great way to learn more about the undergraduate application process, academic programs and campus life.  Registration is required for all visitors.  Please note, dates and times that reach full capacity will be closed.  

*If you are interested in touring our housing facilities at The New Yorker Hotel, we recommend you register for a morning campus tour session to allow ample time for commuting.  There is no additional registration required for the housing tour. Housing tours are offered daily at 2:30 pm only.
