Sarah Lawrence College Campus

Sarah Lawrence College occupies 40 wooded acres in southern Westchester County, just one-half hour north of New York City by train or car.

When William Van Duzer Lawrence mapped out the plans for the school, he believed there should be as little physical separation as possible between life and work, as the two were to be inexorably entwined at the College. Therefore, classrooms, dormitory suites, and faculty offices were all housed in the same graceful, ivy-covered Tudor buildings. As the College has expanded, we have effectively maintained Mr. Lawrence’s philosophy in designing the campus.
