Liberty Campus is a two-block district in Staunton Island, Liberty City, in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. The district borders Rockford to the north, Belleville Park to the south, Fort Staunton to the east, Aspatria to the west and Newport to the southeast. The district is based on Washington Heights, due to the similarity of the buildings and especially the "St. Matthias University", which is a parody of Columbia College located in Morningside Heights.


The main feature in the district is the Liberty City Community College (also known by in-game signage as "St. Matthias University"). The college was named the worst in the United States of America. As the location is primarily college grounds, college students, some in varsity jackets bearing the Liberty City Cocks based in the Liberty Memorial Coliseum in neighboring Aspatria, as a common sight in the area.

The campus itself encompasses two blocks, the southern block featuring a modern extension of the campus. According to the official GTA III website, an "LCC [(Liberty City College)] Meteorology" center is also situated within the southern half of the campus grounds.

The district also boasts a few businesses and residences, but are primarily concentrated towards the southern end of the district.
