Welcome to the Catholic Center at New York University!

Each year hundreds of students walk through our doors at the heart of NYU’s downtown campus, and find here a place where they can live their Catholic Faith fully.

We hope you will explore the many programs and activities on this page, and help us by inviting others to discover our work.

Join us, as we work for a renewal of the mind by proclaiming the Truth!


“Be transformed by the renewal of your minds…”

-Romans 12.2

The Catholic Center at NYU is a Roman Catholic university apostolate of the Archdiocese of New York, served by the Friars of the Order of Preachers. As a chaplaincy for New York University and neighboring academic institutions, The Catholic Center at NYU is an environment for intellectual and spiritual development that enriches the great academic pursuits of the men and women we serve.

Anchored in the pursuit of the Truth, who is a person—Jesus Christ, all our programs and activities invite students and faculty to learn the great mysteries of the Faith, to live the Catholic sacramental life, and to grow in holiness and personal virtue.

Believing that the renewal of the mind is possible, and that it transforms lives, we preach the Truth that sets us free.
