Be a part of John Jay’s Future – Support the Jay Walk Campaign!

With the opening of the College’s new building on 11th Avenue at 58th Street, John Jay College has an outdoor space that transforms the student experience by creating a true urban campus in the heart of Manhattan. The Jay Walk is instrumental in building a feeling of community throughout the College.

The Jay Walk, rising four stories above ground, is a 200 x 300 square foot urban campus that connects Haaren Hall to the new 13-story, state-of-the-art tower.

The Jay Walk is a perfect way to honor and remember alumni, graduating students, faculty and friends. To be part of this campaign, you can donate one of the many bricks that traverse the entire Jay Walk, or add a commemorative plaque to an outdoor bench or one of the many trees that enhance this urban campus. They are all part of the design of the College’s Jay Walk.
