The College campus is comprised of four buildings and two leased facilities with over 580,000 square feet on 7.4 acres in the heart of Brooklyn, a block from Prospect Park and the world class institutions Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and Brooklyn Museum of Art. Easily accessible by public transportation Subways 2, 3, 4 or 5 and buses B43, 44 or 49, sits the three main buildings at the crossroads of Crown Street and Bedford Avenue, also known as “Medgar Evers Lane”: Bedford Building, Academic Building 1, and the School of Business and Student Services. A block to the east is the historic Carroll building.
