With award-winning dining and dorms, the perfect college town and 1,000 acres of natural beauty, there's a lot of ground to cover. But like any home, our campus is both a comfortable place to return to and a launchpad for exploring the world around you.
Travel & Leisure calls it one of “America's best college towns.” We just call it home. In just a short walk from campus, students can be at the heart of a beautiful, bustling city bursting with coffeehouses, restaurants, galleries, parks, boutiques and nightlife. Famed for its many festivals and charming traditions, Saratoga Springs is an ideal location for creative thought to thrive. Plus it's only a short drive to the nearby Adirondacks, Berkshires and Green Mountains and just three hours from New York City, Boston and Montreal.
Skidmore's Community Garden was inspired by our own students with support from the Sustainability Office. Located in the heart of campus, it supplies more than 1,000 pounds of organic food to our dining hall and the Saratoga Farmers Market. It also provides a venue for students interested in environmental issues, social justice and economic development to gain hands-on experience in the local food movement.
