Brooklyn College is a public college of the City University of New York, located in Brooklyn, New York, United States.

Established in 1930 by the New York City Board of Higher Education, the College had its beginnings as the Downtown Brooklyn branches of Hunter College (then a women's college) and the City College of New York (then a men's college). With the merger of these branches, Brooklyn College became the first public coeducational liberal arts college in New York City. The 26-acre (110,000 m2) campus is known for its great beauty, and is often regarded as the "poor man's Harvard" because of its low tuition and reputation for respectable academics.[1] In 2016, U.S. News & World Report ranked the school tied for number 75 as a regional college (North region).[2]
