Yeshiva University has been transforming lives for more than a century. Nowhere but here can students have a personal, small college experience while benefitting from the academic rigor of a top ranked research university. Since its inception YU has been dedicated to melding the ancient traditions of Jewish law and life with the heritage of Western civilization, and each year we celebrate as future leaders make YU their home. More than 6,400 undergraduate and graduate students study at our four New York City campuses: the Wilf Campus, Israel Henry Beren Campus, Brookdale Center and Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus. Our three undergraduate schools Yeshiva College, Stern College for Women and Syms School of Business—offer a unique dual curriculum comprising Jewish studies and liberal arts and sciences courses. Students also have the option to study in Israel in their first year.
