About Medaille College's Buffalo, NY Campus
Medaille College's Buffalo, NY campus sits in the heart of city, and shares Buffalo's cultural diversity and spirit of resurgence. Conveniently located at the intersection of Route 198 and Parkside Avenue, the campus is mere footsteps away from Delaware Park, the vast centerpiece of famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted's world-renowned parks and parkways system.
Medaille is just minutes from the professional sports, arts and culture of downtown Buffalo. Whether you are new to the area or have lived in Western New York your entire life, it's easy to take advantage of all that the College and Buffalo have to offer.
In addition to Delaware Park, the Buffalo campus is adjacent to the Buffalo Zoo and located near the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Buffalo Museum of Science and the downtown corridor's revitalized waterfront, known as Canalside. In addition, Niagara Falls and Toronto are within a 30- to 90-minute drive, respectively.
Once you explore Medaille's campus, you will discover even more options. Unwind by grabbing a coffee at the Commons Café, work out at the 3,000-square-foot fitness center or study comfortably in the fireside lounge. Plus, our classrooms are all designed to provide you with the skills and experience necessary for real-world success.
Offering ample parking, the Buffalo campus is easily accessible by car, bus or Metro Rail. Medaille College is served by the Humboldt-Hospital NFTA rapid transit station, and a circulator shuttle frequently runs between auxiliary parking, located at the Buffalo Zoo, and campus.
