It is home to Fordham College at Rose Hill, the Gabelli School of Business, and a division of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, as well as the Graduate Schools of Arts and Sciences and Religion and Religious Education.It is the largest of Fordham's three campuses, comprising 85 acres (34.4 ha) in the central Bronx; it is also among the largest privately owned green spaces in New York City, situated just north of the Belmont neighborhood on Fordham Road. The original land comprised 100 acres (40.5 ha), but the university sold 30 acres east of Southern Boulevard to the New York City government to become part of the New York Botanical Garden.

In 1954, New York City's Robert Moses proposed that Fordham might "be interested in an alternative [to renting space in the New York Coliseum]” involving a new building in a part of the area to the north of Columbus Circle to be redeveloped. In March 1958, Mayor Robert Wagner signed the deeds transferring the Lincoln Center campus to Fordham University.
The Lincoln Center campus is home to Fordham College at Lincoln Center and a division of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, as well as the School of Law, the Graduate Schools of Education and Social Service, and the Fordham School of Business. The 8-acre (32,000 m2) campus occupies the area from West 60th Street to West 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, placing it in the cultural heart of Manhattan. Lincoln Center has two grassy plazas, built one level up from the street. The larger expanse was once a barren cement landscape known as "Robert Moses Plaza;" the smaller is known as "St. Peter's Garden" and contains a memorial to the Fordham students and alumni who perished in the September 11, 2001 attacks.
