Colby’s campus is beautiful. So beautiful, in fact, that students often say their first view of Miller Library provided that “Aha!” moment when they decided on Colby. Pictures and words can’t do it justice. Come see for yourself.
Colby’s campus comprises 714 acres and 64 buildings, including 30 residence halls, three dining halls, three libraries, a student union, an extensive athletic complex, 50 acres of fields, and one of the nation’s premier institutions of American art, the Colby College Museum of Art. Most of Mayflower Hill, including all of the 128-acre Perkins Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary, is a State Wildlife Management Area. Johnson Pond, the Campbell Trails for running and cross-country skiing, an organic garden run by students, and lots of wide-open space provide reasons to enjoy Colby’s campus year-round (view slideshow).
Overlooking the small city of Waterville and the Kennebec River Valley, Colby is just an hour from Maine’s picturesque seacoast or rugged mountain terrain. We are also just 60 minutes away from Portland, Maine’s largest city.
Colby College is a tobacco-free campus.
