Our Campus

Our Campus

Hostos Community College is centrally located at the bustling intersection of 149th Street and Grand Concourse, directly across the street from the Bronx General Post Office and a few short blocks from Lincoln Hospital. The pedestrian bridge that links the east and the west sides of our campus has become an icon for the College, as well as a major public space for students.
When the College first opened in 1968, classes were held in a renovated tire factory at 475 Grand Concourse; by the mid-1970s, growing enrollments led to the purchase and renovation of an office building at 500 Grand Concourse. In the mid-1980s, a facilities master plan was developed, resulting in the construction of 450 Grand Concourse and the renovation and expansion of the original structure at 475 Grand Concourse.
In the 1990s, a new building at East 149th and Walton Avenue and an additional building at East 146th and Walton Avenue extended the campus westward along Walton Avenue. Pressed for space, the College has expanded further west, renting property at Bronx Terminal Market since 2013. The college has also maintained a satellite location for Continuing Education programming in Washington Heights since 2005.
In 2012, a facilities master plan amendment was developed to guide the future development of our campus; it identified constant pressure for space and a need to renovate and reorganize existing facilities. The College has begun to implement the master plan amendment; one major step forward is the planning of a new Allied Health and Sciences Building Complex.
