Pace University draws strength from ideally located campuses in three locations, offering students choices of living and learning experiences, especially professional experiences that lead to careers and opportunities for students to improve their lives and the lives of others. Locations include our quintessential urban campus in New York City, blocks from Wall Street and South Street Seaport, our traditional suburban collegiate setting in the heart of beautiful Westchester County, and our White Plains campus with a 13 acre Law School Campus and Graduate Center directly across the street from the train station.

Pace combines the benefits and resources of a large university with the warmth and personal attention usually associated with a small college, with class sizes averaging only 28 students. Campus housing is available on each campus.

At the school’s New York City campus, students live and learn amidst the bustling Financial District of lower Manhattan. Conversely, students seeking a suburban lifestyle can opt to attend the school’s Westchester campus in Pleasantville, N.Y., about 30 miles outside of New York City. Undergraduates have on-campus housing options at both locations, though many students choose to commute. Each campus also has its own selection of student organizations, including fraternities and sororities.

The Pace University sports teams, known as the Setters, compete in the NCAA Division II Northeast-10 Conference. Since Inside the Actors Studio, a television show, is filmed at Pace’s Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts at the New York City campus, students can attend tapings for free. Pace also has a law school, which is particularly well regarded for environmental law, and the Lubin Business School. Notable alumni of Pace University include James Quinn, president of Tiffany & Co., and Ivan Seidenberg, CEO of Verizon Communications Inc. Culinary whiz Rachel Ray attended Pace University, though she dropped out after two years.
