Syracuse University's Academic Home in NYC

Fisher CenterThe Fisher Center is Syracuse University’s consolidated academic campus in New York City—a state-of-the-art teaching facility that supports Syracuse University’s goal of providing every student a chance to study in one of the world’s greatest, most dynamic metropolitan areas.

Located at Madison Avenue and 31st Street, the Fisher Center:

  • Is home to a number of immersion programs—including the Tepper Semester, Syracuse Architecture NYC, and Newhouse in NYC.
  • Offers 20,000 square feet of purpose-built space, including several “smart” classrooms, a 66-seat lecture hall, and architecture and drama studios. View the photo gallery and download the Fisher Center floorplan [PDF].
  • Provides both our NYC faculty and visiting faculty with the same capabilities and technology our instructors have on campus. 
  • Hosts events throughout the year for alumni and current and prospective students.
