Are the Pace campuses safe?
Pace University has a highly professional security staff on duty and visible 24 hours a day/7 days a week on both our New York City and Westchester campuses. All students, faculty, staff, and alumni must show identification to enter the premises, and all visitors must register at the security stations before entering.  The New York City campus is also located next to City Hall and 1 Police Plaza. However, Pace University is located in a major metropolitan area, so community members are expected to follow safety guidelines and use discretion and common sense.

May I take classes at the New York City and the Pleasantville campus?
Yes, a student may take classes on each of the campuses if he or she chooses to do so, but it is never necessary. There is a free shuttle that operates between the New York City and Pleasantville campus. Scheduling should be considered carefully because of the 30 mile distance between the two campuses. We do not recommend taking classes on each campus on the same day, but many students will choose a day during the week to travel to the other campus.

If I apply to one campus, may I attend the other instead?
Yes. Once admitted to the university, you are admitted to all campuses. However, students should verify that their selected major is offered on the other campus. Most majors are offered on both campuses, but there are certain majors that are offered on only one of the campuses.

How many freshmen get financial aid?
