Our traditions go well beyond the trophy case. From club sports and Division 1 excellence to lively intramurals and on-campus fitness, athletics at Canisius inspire a healthy sense of Golden Griffin pride.
Whether you play on a team or cheer from the sidelines, a Canisius game is a great way to connect with fellow Griffs. Most events are easily accessible, too.
- Close to the Action: The Koessler Athletic Center and Demske Field are both within easy walking distance from the dorms
- Free Student Tickets: Enjoy complimentary tickets to every event. Just be sure to wear some blue and gold!
- LECOM Harborcenter: Use your free metro pass to catch the train to LECOM Harborcenter, where you can watch the Griffs play Division 1 hockey.
