Touro College and University System, one of the nation’s leading non-profit institutions of higher and professional education under Jewish auspices, announced plans to build a new 243,305 square-foot campus at 3 Times Square, an iconic Midtown skyscraper owned and operated by the Rudin Family. Touro plans to officially move into the new space in January 2023.
Touro will transform eight floors of the building into classrooms, science and technology labs, offices and event space and will have a dedicated entrance and lobby on the southwest corner of 43rd Street and Seventh Avenue. The more than 2,000 staff and students who will work and attend class there daily will provide a major economic boost to local businesses, revitalizing an area traditionally frequented by tourists and office workers.
“Touro College and University System has arrived at its 50th anniversary with confidence and strength under the stellar leadership of Dr. Alan Kadish,” Zvi Ryzman, Board Chairman of Touro College & University System said in a statement. “The signing of the lease at 3 Times Square for a new state-of-the-art home for several of Touro’s world class schools and programs indicates a bright and successful future for the institution.”
Seven of Touro’s schools will be housed in the location, including the College of Pharmacy (TCOP), New York School of Career & Applied Studies (NYSCAS), Graduate School of Business (GSB), Graduate School of Education (GSE), Graduate School of Jewish Studies (GSJS), Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) and Graduate School of Technology (GST).
