A modern environment customized for the SFC community
For more than 60 years, St. Francis College’s Remsen Street campus in Brooklyn Heights has been our home and served our community well. Fortunately, our community keeps growing — SFC’s student body has grown from about 2,300 to more than 2,700 in just four years. The College expects to have more than 3,500 students by 2026.
St. Francis College will better deliver the next generation of academic guidance and extracurricular programming and meet demands on infrastructure and technology at its new home at 179 Livingston St. in Downtown Brooklyn.
The new campus is located within minutes from the Remsen Street campus, and is situated between Hoyt Street and Jay Street stations. Our new home will be even more accessible via public transit for our commuter students and will unlock access to opportunities in New York City beyond our campus.
The campus has been designed specifically for St. Francis College to meet our community’s needs, and features a dedicated lobby entrance and elevators for students, staff, and visitors, and ample space for student gatherings — including a new shared roof deck overlooking Downtown Brooklyn.
The new campus also features:
- a 38-seat chapel, with an expandable multi-faith room
- a 300-seat auditorium
- a 32-seat tiered screening room
- a 6,600 square foot library with spaces for study and research
- two art gallery spaces
- a 260-seat cafeteria with servery and kitchen
- a 50-seat outdoor terrace
The investment in our physical spaces also reaches into our classrooms and faculty office space. Enhanced technology is present in every classroom, common space, and lab to keep St. Francis College on the cusp of developments in the academic world.
With improved wireless coverage in all spaces, our refreshed classrooms are equipped with tech for 21st-century pedagogical techniques, including screen capture and smart technology screens. Offices will also provide flexibility that adapts to all types of department functions — including various types of private and open collaboration.
