Daily Life on Campus

Campus Essentials

Read here to learn a bit about our main campus buildings, at 250 Joralemon Street and One Boerum Place, and familiarize yourself with the resources within the surrounding neighborhood.

Transportation & Parking
Traveling around the five boroughs of New York is best done by subway, bus, train, or taxi, and is fairly straightforward once you get your bearings. 

Brooklyn Law School is served by the Borough Hall transportation hub (also known as Court Street) that is adjacent to our main building and can connect you to almost any point within New York City. The station is served by the 2, 3, 4, 5 and R subway lines. The A, C, and F trains can also be accessed from stations close to the main campus.

Transportation Hubs
New York's two main train hubs, Grand Central and Penn Station, serve Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, and the Long Island Rail Road, as well as the New England and Hudson Valley lines, and also offers connections to the city's main airports: JFK International, La Guardia, and Newark International. An expansive subway and bus system, including the Port Authority bus terminal, connects you to all points in the tri-state area and beyond.

Parking
While there are parking garages in the neighborhood close to the Law School, most students find them unnecessary as they walk to school or commute by subway, bus, or train. However, parking can be found on an hourly, daily, or monthly basis.

In addition to the national car rental agencies, Zip Car is a low-cost alternative that provides a range of cars on an hourly basis, including gas. The cars are parked in garages close to the Law School and can be accessed with your Zip Car membership card: zipcar.com

Parking Garage Underneath Feil Hall
The parking garage underneath Feil Hall is leased to an outside company. A discount of the monthly rate is available to the BLS community. Questions about the parking garage at Feil Hall should be directed to the parking garage directly by phone at (718) 852 - 0561.

Our Bookstore 
The Brooklyn Law School Bookstore is a great resource for all your school-related needs, from textbooks to apparel and gifts. The bookstore hours are Mon, Wed & Thu 9 am to 5 pm, Tue 9 am to 6 pm and Fri 9 am to 4 pm. You can also shop online at www.brooklaw.edu/bookstore.

Barnes & Noble is just a few blocks away from the Law School, and Court Street Office Supplies, one-half block away, is a convenient resource for school supplies.

Lockers
To keep your valuables safe while you are in class, lockers are provided where you can store your personal belongings. Restrooms are located conveniently on each floor of the school’s main building.

Staying Connected
BLSConnect, the Law School’s Portal, is an essential information source that will keep you up-to-date on important announcements, including class schedules, as well as upcoming academic and social events.

Additional coverage of campus news, events, key announcements, and rotating photos of campus life are also displayed on digital monitors, prominently placed in the lobby and on the fourth floor of the main building.

Information and flyers about upcoming events are also posted on notice boards throughout the main building.

Office of Student Affairs
For more information on student services and amenities, our Office of Student Affairs is the primary advocate and administrative liaison for the student body. The office is responsible for enhancing quality of life for students through support of student groups, accommodations for disabilities, assistance with ethical issues, academic advising, counseling, securing Law School services, and publishing resources for students.
