Fordham University is not just the only Jesuit university in New York City, but also the third-oldest university in New York City. Fordham University has two campuses, a location at Rose Hill in the Bronx, and Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Unbeknownst to most, Fordham University is also one of the most haunted college campuses in America – the Rose Hill campus in particular. Each location has its own secrets, but Rose Hill in the Bronx is the original location and therefore enriched with history and stories of alleged hauntings. When Fordham students aren’t being taunted by ghosts and spirits, they are either studying amongst great, hidden artworks or eating the best pizza in the Bronx.

10. Dealy Hall, One of NYC’s Remaining Armories
Dealy Hall at Fordham University’s Rose Hill Campus in the Bronx did not always host dreaded 8:30 am classes. In fact, this building dates back to 1867 when it was actually used as an armory. As such, Dealy Hall is one of the last remaining armories in New York City. The building was expanded in 1891 and again later. Currently, this building houses the psychology and humanities departments and most important to Fordham students, an on-campus Starbucks location.
