Canisius College Area Apartments for Rent
The campus of Canisius College, a private college founded in 1870, is unique – it rests on top of a web of tunnels. The tunnels help keep students out of the cold winters common in this part of Western New York. Canisius College is affiliated with the Roman Catholic church and is named for St. Peter Canisius. The 72-acre, urban campus is located in Buffalo, New York.
Offering over 100 majors, minors, and special programs, Canisius is considered one of the top regional colleges and was listed at number seven in US News & World Report‘s “Great Schools at Great Prices” for 2014.
The Canisius College Golden Griffins compete in 17 sports, including basketball, soccer, hockey, baseball, and lacrosse. They are part of NCAA Division I as members of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC). The men’s hockey team won the Atlantic Hockey Championship in 2013, and the women’s lacrosse team won the MACC Championships for the third year in a row in 2013.
