Fashioned from a 40-foot long bus, the City University of New York’s CUNY On Wheels project is a state-of-the art mobile classroom and information center that assists in bringing admissions and financial aid information and higher education and training services to the residents of the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens, NY. CUNY On Wheels is equipped with high-tech telecommunications, high-speed wireless Internet access, computer workstations, LCD screen monitors, and seating for up to 12 people for information sessions, workshops and seminars.

The mobile CUNY admissions center/computer-based multi-media classroom was developed in response to the higher education, training and workforce developed needs of residents in geographically isolated communities, particularly on the Rockaway peninsula in Queens, NY. The project was conceived and initially funded by Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall and LaGuardia Community College President Gail O. Mellow. CUNY on Wheels is the first of its kind for the City University of New York and can potentially deliver information and educational services of 11 CUNY senior colleges, 6 CUNY community colleges, and 3 CUNY graduate schools. CUNY On Wheels provides an innovative approach to community outreach and delivery of educational, workforce development, and training services.

Our Mission:

To provide CUNY higher education, training services and workforce development to residents in geographically isolated communities, particularly on the Rockaway peninsula.
