Welcome to the SUNY Global Center

Premier event space in the heart of midtown Manhattan


Housed in a distinguished landmark building at 116 East 55th Street, the SUNY Global Center is the headquarters for the State University of New York in New York City. Built in 1927, the five story, Georgian style mansion was the Ziegler residence, designated a historic landmark by the New York City Landmark Preservation Commission in 2001.

One of the last grand, private homes built in Manhattan, the Ziegler home hosted decades of elegant dinners and refined entertainment. Today, the Global Center’s original architectural features and modern amenities create a unique and versatile setting for a variety of functions including educational, non-profit, corporate, and private events.

Visitors to Global Center find themselves in the heart of midtown Manhattan, steps away from restaurants, hotels, parking, public transportation, and local attractions.
