Canisius is located in the Hamlin Park district, an historic and conveniently-located residential neighborhood in north-central Buffalo. Spanning 72 total acres, the campus is comprised of 16 academic and administrative buildings, three athletic complexes and 11 residence halls. Over the past two decades more than $175 million has been invested to create a state-of-the-art living and learning environment – including the newly renovated Science Hall, the Nelson D. Civello ’67 Family Financial Markets Lab and Dugan Hall, our newest residence hall. We are an easily walkable campus – even in the winter months thanks to a network of tunnels that snake underground connecting residence halls to our student center and main academic buildings.
Canisius’ prime location provides the ideal backdrop for a student’s college experience. We are within walking distance to Delaware Park, the city’s most popular greenspace, a short bike ride or drive to the Elmwood Village, a bustling cultural district, and a 10-minute train ride to historic Allentown or to Buffalo’s stunning and redeveloped downtown waterfront. Canisius is also within driving distance of exciting international destinations, including Niagara Falls and Toronto and is within a day’s drive or hour-long flight from most major cities in the northeast.
