St. Lawrence University

Canton, NY 13617

St. Lawrence University is a private, four-year liberal arts university located in Canton, New York. Founded in 1856, it is the oldest continuously coeducational institution of higher learning in New York State.

Located in Northern New York, the village of Canton is an active and welcoming community tucked between the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains and the Canadian border.

With St. Lawrence being the closest liberal arts college to an international capital and only 20 minutes from the Adirondack Park, the educational experience becomes an adventure where students get to use our location as their classroom. Our students courageously seek opportunities to discover, grow and become informed global citizens, approaching every question and every challenge without constraints as they aspire to create solutions that transform communities and the world.

Across our campus and at the heart of every interaction, compassion and support are the common threads that bind us together – and the foundation upon which our students, faculty, and staff achieve their goals and greatest success.
