D'Youville College is an independent, urban, co-educational institution that provides liberal arts and professional programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree level. (In the US, the words college and university mean the same thing. College does not refer to high school or two-year school.)
Founded in 1908, D'Youville College has grown exponentially over the last century to offer a wide variety of majors and professional programs in health care, business and education -- specifically designed to prepare its ever-changing student population with the education and experience to be successful, both professionally and personally. D'Youville offers its students the diversity and academic excellence of a large university, with the personal attention of a small one.
D'Youville offers two on-campus living options. Marguerite Hall is our traditional, dormitory-styled residence, housing 308 primarily first- and second-year students. Rooms accommodate two students, and floors are divided by gender.
The Apartment Complex houses up to 163 students in four-bedroom suites, or individual studio apartments. Students must be either 21 or older, or in their third full year of college to be eligible for the Apartment Complex.
The International Student Office at D'Youville will try to arrange an airport pick-up for you when you arrive (depending on your arrival time). A special international orientation will familiarize you with campus offices, facilities and services, and introduce you to faculty, staff, fellow students and the surrounding area.
Buffalo is New York State's second-largest city, nestled in a region of more than one million people. Our area is home to great American architecture, world-class visual and performing arts, national sports teams, skiing, boating and historic neighborhoods with great cafe culture. Buffalonians enjoy over 400 area restaurants offering cuisine from around the world -- from Asian to European. It's also host to a variety of vibrant and unique neighborhoods, such as Elmwood Village, named one of the Top 10 Places in America by the American Planning Association. With its temperate, four-season climate and large university student population, Buffalo is an ideal place to live, play and study.
