Brooklyn College is the only institution of higher learning in operation inside the Safe Zone. Competition to get into the college is fierce, with only 2,500 students accepted each year since its inaugural freshman class in 2016. Currently serving about 7,300 students, the school is equipped to serve about 10,000 by 2019. Arts, humanities, and sciences are equally represented. While some master's degree programs are offered, the school does not have any doctorate programs. Classes to educate SLC-Expressive people on the use of their abilities are free to Registered SLC-E citizens. Campus activities include the usual clubs, but athletics are purely intramural.

The campus itself sprawls across 20-some acres where tall, red-brick Georgian-style buildings loom over green lawns lined with elm trees. Built in the 1930s, the exteriors of the buildings look a little worn and torn, but within, the classrooms are brightly lit, clean, and modern. A lab of electric typewriters has been added to the library, and students are instructed to "save and save often" by signs posted in the computer labs.

In addition to the classrooms and dorms, a Performing Arts Center houses two venues; the Brooklyn Concert Hall has seats for an audience of 1,500 while the smaller theater, the George Gershwin, holds 500. Both venues may be used for community events if not in use by the college.
