St. John's University in New York City is shuttering its Staten Island campus in 2024 because of a drop in enrollment. 

The university, whose main campus is in the Queens borough, says the Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated an existing enrollment decline at the location, reports NY1

In fall 2021, 861 undergraduate and graduate students were enrolled at the Staten Island site, according to the university's website. The expected enrollment for fall 2022 is 63% lower than it was in 2000. 

University officials said juniors, seniors and graduate students will still be able to complete their degrees at the location.

St. John's Staten Island campus had its beginnings in the 1930s as a women's college,  Notre Dame College. It was absorbed by St. John's in 1971.
