Liberty City Community College, as known in short as Liberty City College and by its in-game sign as St. Matthias University, is a college based in Liberty Campus, Staunton Island, Liberty City.


The college is run by Dean Smegley,[1] with Eric Ershwitz also employed by the college as the Professor for Contemporary Crime.[2]

The college was named the worst in the United States, resulting in the appointment of Smegley as the Dean of the college. The college, under Smegley, is abandoning the old methods of evaluating and old subjects, replacing them with diplomas for subjects such as street cleaning and grading students on how bad they look. Using these figures, the college would move to 34th in the league tables.[3] Liberty City Community College is primarily based on Columbia Univeristy in Manhattan, New York City.

The new diplomas include.[4]:

  • Street cleaning
  • Processed Agriculture Rotation
  • Grill Management
  • Floor cleaning
  • Restroom Administration
  • Coatroom Management
  • Automobile Ignition Circumvention
  • Pharmaceutical Baking

In Grand Theft Auto III, Claude receives missions given by King Courtney by means of a public telephone located in front the college.
