Buffalo, NY - A great place to live

Buffalo, the second largest city in New York State, is much more than chicken wings and snow; it is a great, four season college town.  The City of Good Neighbors boasts world class architecture, beautiful parks built by Central Park designer Frederick Law Olmsted, a thriving theater district, art galleries and museums all within minutes of our campus.

If you ask our students what there is to do in the City of Buffalo you will get more options than you'll know what to do with!  From eclectic restaurants, charming shops, a world-renowned art gallery, amazing theater district, professional athletics, non-stop nightlife, and a beautiful park with a historic zoo just steps away, Canisius students are never bored.  

Buffalo is also home to leaders in the health care, technology, non-profit and corporate professions, which provide hands-on training for Canisius students and many opportunities for Canisius graduates.



Western New Yorkers make the most of the region’s four seasons by taking in the vibrant fall foliage, skiing or sledding during white winters, watching a ballgame on a cool spring evening, or enjoying one of the many summertime festivals. And if that isn't enough, you're just a bridge away from Canada.  In or outdoors, there's plenty to do in Buffalo, and many reasons to make Canisius College and Western New York your home away from home.
