Fordham University, Rose Hill campus, Keating Hall.

Fordham University has three residential campuses: Rose Hill in the Bronx, Lincoln Center in Manhattan, and Marymount in Tarrytown, New York.

The Rose Hill campus, established in 1841, is home to the undergraduate Fordham College at Rose Hill, the College of Business Administration, and a portion of the Fordham College of Liberal Studies as well as the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the Graduate School of Religion & Religious Education. Located on 85 acres in the north Bronx, it is among the largest "green campuses" in New York City. The campus is bordered by the New York Botanical Garden, the Bronx Zoo, and "Little Italy of the Bronx" on Arthur Avenue. Rose Hill's traditional collegiate Gothic architecture, cobblestone streets, and green expanses of lawn have been used as settings in a number of feature films over the years. Among the 15 campus dormitories are Fordham's three residential colleges: O'Hare Hall, Tierney Hall, and Queen's Court (whose buildings date back to the days of St. John's College) with its notable Bishop's Lounge. About 6,284 undergraduates and graduates attend, with 3,143 in residence.
