Who Are We?

Mark Twain said it best: if you can make your mark here then you’ve made it, you’ve arrived. Every year, nearly a million college students from around the globe come here to chase that dream. If you’re one of them, you know that NYC is a great place to learn, grow, and build your future. But it can also be competitive, chaotic, and lonely. 

In the midst of all that, RUF City Campus is a diverse community of students learning together how the extraordinary life of Jesus changes us for the better. Together we build friendships, serve our city, seek answers to our doubts and questions, worship God, and study the Bible. Whether you identify as a Christian or not, we hope you find us to be a safe place to be in process.

We go to various schools in New York City, including New York University (NYU), The New School, City College, Fordham University, The Juilliard School, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Pace University, School of Visual Arts, and others. All are welcome!

We are a part of Reformed University Fellowship and affiliated with Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
