Most resources within the FDU Online Library are available 24/7, both on campus and remotely. The exterior of the library features a relief by noted artist William Zorach. This main library of the Metropolitan Campus was formerly known as Weiner Library. The new name acknowledges the generosity of John Giovatto, in honor of his late brother, Frank Giovatto.

Dickinson Hall Floor Plans
With its distinctive tent-like roof, its river-side setting, and its seating for up to 6000, the George and Phyllis Rothman Center is perhaps FDU’s best-known building to the wider community. The Rothman Center is on the Hackensack side of the campus, and is the primary athletic and recreational facility for the Metropolitan Campus.
It includes facilities for basketball, tennis, racquetball and volleyball. It features a six-lane, 200-meter track, coaching offices, a weight room and spectator seating for nearly 5,000 fans. Home of the FDU Knights, the University’s Division I sports program, the Rothman Center’s excellent resources are occasionally called into use by visiting pro teams for practice before major games at the Meadowlands or Madison Square Garden.
U.S. Presidents Clinton (in 1996) and Obama (in 2009) have spoken at events in the Rothman Center.
Edward Williams Hall
FDU is a builder of bridges in many ways, and when we say we’re connected, we really mean it. The Metropolitan Campus counts not only Teaneck but also Hackensack as its home, thanks to a footbridge that joins the two parts of campus across the scenic Hackensack River. (See an article about kayaking the Hackensack River.) Hackensack’s urban benefits and Teaneck’s small-town atmosphere offer FDU students the best of both worlds. Hackensack is home to Dickinson Hall, the Edward Williams Building, and the George and Phyllis Rothman Center.
Naimoli Family Baseball Complex
The University community gathered on Wednesday, October 5, to celebrate the dedication of the Naimoli Family Baseball Complex on the Metropolitan Campus. The complex features an artificial turf surface that is playable much sooner after rain than any natural surface field.
FDU’s “Field of Dreams” became a reality thanks to the generosity of alumnus Vincent Naimoli, MBA’64 (Flor), founder and chairman emeritus of the Tampa Bay Rays Major League Baseball Team, an FDU trustee and a member of the FDU NOW Campaign Steering Committee. “Vince cares deeply about our student-athletes,” said David Langford, director of athletics (Metro). “He believes implicitly that life’s most important lessons are learned on the playing field. We are indebted to him for his generosity and providing this wonderful facility.”
Naimoli’s Baseball Complex is the latest step in what is now a five-sport transformation of FDU’s Division I athletic facilities, with significant upgrades for softball, indoor track, soccer, tennis, and now baseball.
