About Queens College

Academic programs are organized into four divisions, which offer both day and evening courses: Arts and Humanities; Mathematics and the Natural Sciences; the Social Sciences; and Education (Queens College educates more teachers than any other college in the New York City region). The college offers several new undergraduate and graduate majors, including a BA in Chinese, a BA in Classics, a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, an MFA in Creative Writing and Translation, an MS in Photonics, and an MS in Risk Management.

The college’s centers and institutes serve students and the larger community by addressing society’s most important challenges—including cancer, pollution, and racism—as well as celebrating the borough’s many ethnic communities. Its arts scene is vibrant, thanks to the Kupferberg Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, which brings together the college’s academic departments in the arts (Music, Drama, Theatre & Dance, Art, and Media Studies) and its museums (the Godwin-Ternbach Museum, the Queens College Art Center, and the Louis Armstrong House Museum). The celebrated Evening Readings Series has brought some of the world’s most acclaimed writers to campus.

Campus information

The beautiful campus consists of 80 acres lined with trees surrounding grassy open spaces and a traditional quad. The college boasts state-of-the-art computer and science laboratories, a spectacular music building, and the six-story Rosenthal Library. The major classroom building, Powdermaker Hall, has the latest technology throughout. An extensive commitment to sustainability has earned Queens College inclusion in the Princeton Review’s first-ever Guide to 322 Green Colleges.

Our facilities support our educational goals. Powdermaker Hall, the major classroom building, boasts state-of-the-art technology. The Benjamin Rosenthal Library, with its light-filled atrium and distinctive clock tower, features innovations in information retrieval. Science labs in Remsen Hall have been upgraded through a renovation and construction of a new wing; the Aaron Copland School of Music has professional performance spaces—including the acoustically ideal LeFrak Concert Hall—and practice rooms equipped with Steinway pianos.

The college has expanded its wireless capability and opened new cafés and dining areas. Fresh landscaping, new tennis courts, and an extensive recycling program are among the latest improvements. The Summit Apartments, the first residence hall on campus, opened in August 2009.

Located in a residential area of Flushing in the borough of Queens—America’s most ethnically diverse county—the college has students from more than 150 nations.


Opened in 2009, the Summit Apartments at Queens College are a STIMULATING, and exceptionally CONVENIENT place to live, with a variety of payment options. Experience the best of student housing.
