A Sense of Place
Set in the Chenango Valley of central New York, Colgate is one of the most beautiful environments in America. It is forever in Colgate’s identity: breathtaking beauty
This is a scene of unforgettable beauty, of energetic spirit, of intellectual preparation for life. This education is distinct.
The best of a research university and a liberal arts college in one.
Academic excellence at a remarkably personal level.
A place of energy, opportunity, tradition, and pride.
A place of lifelong connections.
A place of proud tradition and bold ambition.
Every Colgate student's journey is unique
Colgate attracts students who want to live in a community with peers, study seriously, challenge themselves, be active, get involved. The reason it feels right to people from so many different places and perspectives is because Colgate supports, and welcomes them.

Hamilton, New York
A short walk down the hill is charming Hamilton, a village of about 4,200 people, where most of the Colgate faculty live. Hamilton is the spot for students to get off campus and grab a slice, catch a movie, browse the bookstore and enjoy a weekly farmers’ market.
