Our 72-acre campus rests atop a labyrinth of tunnels. The underground network runs from Dugan Hall to Old Main, from Iggy's in Palisano Pavilion to Bouwhuis Library. The tunnels serve a practical use—they keep us warm through Western New York winters. But there’s more to it than that. They’re vibrant. You can’t walk 10 feet without hearing a welcoming ‘hello.’ Bright posters adorn the walls—invitations for upcoming events. Friendships form on the pathways to class. Snacks are shared. Courses are taught. Clubs rally. Our tunnels keep us connected, in more ways than one.

Saturday Visits

Nothing beats first-hand experience. It’s the best way to learn and it’s the best way to choose a college. We’d love to show you around (and show you off a little, too).

Weekday Visits

To get the full Canisius experience, sit down for a one-on-one conversation. Get your questions answered in person. Spend half-an-hour getting to know an admissions counselor. See our state-of-the-art campus for yourself. This individualized approach is a lot like a Canisius education.
