Nestled in a friendly neighborhood surrounded by natural beauty

In a serene suburban setting within Thornwood, our New York campus spans 97 acres of wooded beauty, offering spaces like the South Hall's grassy area for leisure and the East-West Hall courtyard for various activities. The campus transforms into a winter wonderland when snow blankets the forest, featuring 5 kilometers of trails ideal for running and biking, frequented by wildlife like deer and turkeys. 

Inspired living and learning

On our campus, immersion learning happens everywhere. Flourish academically and in life with facilities designed to foster learning by doing activities that inspire exploration beyond the classroom.

Student lounges—spaces to be yourself and socialize

Hang out after class in one of our spaces for leisure time. There is no shortage of student spaces in our dorms, the Main Building, and the Academic Building. Each nook of our campus has a common area to be used for either relaxation or collaboration. Some spaces are equipped with lots of seating space and desks for group work, college fairs, and community meetings, while others contain foosball and table tennis to have some fun in your free time.

Nestled in a friendly neighborhood surrounded by natural beauty

Surrounded by 97 acres of wooded grounds, our campus in New York is tucked in the quiet suburban town of Thornwood. With bright and modern learning spaces, access to healthy resources and daily activities, you have plenty of space to pursue your passions and explore your home away from home. In warmer months, the grassy area in front of the South Hall is where you can read, play frisbee and listen to music with your friends. The courtyard between the East and West Halls hosts residence activities, outdoor study sessions and badminton matches. When it snows, our forest turns into a true winter wonderland. Five kilometers of running and biking trails weave through the wooded grounds that surround the campus, and wildlife including deer and turkeys frequently enjoy the natural surroundings.
