York College of The City University of New York is one of eleven senior colleges in the City University of New York (CUNY) system. It is located in Jamaica, Queens in New York City. Founded in 1966, York was the first senior college founded under the newly formed CUNY system, which united several previously independent public colleges into a single public university system in 1961. The college is a member-school of Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

Today, with an enrollment of more than 8,000 students, York serves as one of CUNY's leading liberal arts colleges, granting bachelor's degrees in more than 40 fields, including those in the Health Professions, Nursing (BS) and a combined BS/MS degree in Occupational Therapy, among others. The York College Library subscribes to dozens of electronic resources, as well as print journals, to support the research needs of the faculty and students.

Based on a study conducted by The Institute for College Access & Success (TICAS), NerdScholar, a scholarship information organization and website, recently listed York College as the “US College with the lowest student debt in 2013.” The national survey chose York as number one on its top 20 list of colleges and universities both private and public.

Marcia V. Keizs, a native of Kingston, Jamaica, became York College's 6th president in February 2005.
