About the Metropolitan Campus

Do you want to be near the energy and opportunities of New York City - but prefer to attend college on a quiet, suburban campus? FDU's Metropolitan Campus may be the place for you. With its strong career focus, this campus is home to many of FDU's business, professional, science and health care programs. It's a celebration of diversity, too, attracting students from 63 countries. Running through the heart of campus is the Hackensack River. Quaint homes, shops, ethnic restaurants and parks are near by, as well as shopping malls, community groups, and office and professional buildings, where many of our resident and commuter students alike find part-time jobs. You'll also like the campus' proximity to New York City, where you can study Broadway, Wall Street and the United Nations up close and in person!
