Fairleigh Dickinson University is a private university with several campuses located in New Jersey, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

The institution has two main campuses located in New Jersey: (1) the College at Florham in Madison which is centered on the former estate of Florence Vanderbilt and Hamilton Twombly, and (2) the Metropolitan Campus located close to New York City and spanning the Hackensack River in Teaneck and Hackensack. It also owns two international campuses, one in Vancouver, British Columbia, and another in Wroxton, England, known as Wroxton College. In 1965, Fairleigh Dickinson University acquired the Wroxton Abbey, now home to Wroxton College, from Trinity College, Oxford becoming the first American university to own and operate its own campus in England, and the first to own and operate a campus outside the United States. In 2007, the university began offering degree programs at a new campus in the downtown neighborhood of Yaletown in Vancouver, British Columbia named FDU-Vancouver.

Fairleigh Dickinson University was founded by Dr. Peter Sammartino and his wife, Sylvia, in 1942 in Rutherford, New Jersey as a two-year college. It was named for its benefactor, Colonel Fairleigh S. Dickinson, Sr. (1866–1948), a co-founder of Becton Dickinson. By 1948, Fairleigh Dickinson College expanded its curriculum to offer a four-year program. In that same year, the school received accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In 1956, the same year the University acquired the former Twombly-Vanderbilt estate in Madison, the institution was recognized as Fairleigh Dickinson University by the New Jersey State Board of Education. Fairleigh Dickinson University is a member of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities.
