Campuses and Facilities

We challenge the traditional ideas of “campus life.” Wide-open spaces, meandering pathways, skylights, lofted ceilings and intimate courtyards enhance the sense of community.

From residence halls modeled after European ski villages to brownstone-style buildings with full kitchens and patios, we purposefully designed our living spaces with personal comfort, connecting with friends and student safety in mind.

Our outdoor spaces are more than just green grass. They are places where you'll gather with friends for cookouts, play a pick-up game of basketball or simply study with the beauty of New England as your backdrop.
