Kalamazoo College offers an excellent learning environment. Its hilltop campus covers nearly 60 acres. At the heart of the campus is the quadrangle (fondly known as the Quad), bordered by academic and administrative buildings, the student center, and Stetson Chapel. Beyond the Quad are the fine arts facilities, including theatres and recital halls, the nationally recognized Dow Science Center, classrooms, offices, living/learning houses and residence halls, an athletic center, a racquet center, tennis courts, a swimming pool, and athletic field complex.
The College also owns a 135-acre arboretum located in Kalamazoo County.
Kalamazoo College is located in a quiet residential section of Kalamazoo, a city with a metropolitan population of more than 225,000 in scenic southwest Michigan. The city’s downtown district is within easy walking distance from the campus, and other shopping malls, as well as movies and restaurants, are a short bike or bus ride away. Western Michigan University is only a few blocks from the campus.
Seventy-five percent of Kalamazoo College students live on campus and nearly all of our off-campus students reside within four blocks of campus. Residential living is supportive of K students’ academic preparation and plays an integral role in their experiential education, providing rich opportunities for involvement and development. Along with 60 student organizations, this high level of residential living contributes to a lively campus atmosphere.
First- and Second-year students live in one of the six residence halls or one of the Living Learning Housing Units. In the first year halls, the focus is on assisting students in their transition to the College and making those important connections. The upper class halls assist students in creating their own communities and continuing those connections.
