About Marist College

Marist College, recognized for excellence by U.S. News & World Report, Time, and "The Princeton Review," and by "Barron's Best Buys in College Education," is noted for its leadership in the use of technology to enhance the teaching and learning process.

Founded in 1929, Marist's 210-acre campus overlooks the Hudson River in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley, midway between New York City and Albany, the state capital.

What started as a school for the training of future Marist Brothers has developed into one of the leading colleges of the arts and sciences in the nation. Marist is ecumenical in character and reflects the ideals of the founder of the Marist Brothers, St. Marcellin Champagnat: commitment to excellence in education, a pursuit of higher human values, and dedication to the principle of service.

Marist is dedicated to helping students develop the intellect, character, and skills required for enlightened, ethical, and productive lives in the global community of the 21st century.

Campus information

Life at Marist outside the classroom offers a wealth of opportunity for personal growth and development that supports and enhances students' academic experience. From exciting trips to Broadway shows, to volunteering at a local elementary school or food pantry, getting a massage at the annual Wellness Fair, attending a workshop on stress management in a residence hall, or participating with hundreds of fellow students in the Relay for Life, there are countless activities from which to choose.

Consistent with the Marist College Mission , the sense of community and the sense of service to others are important to us. Both the philosophy and the staff in the Division of Student Affairs support the development of the whole person: intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually. In addition to making lifelong friendships with one another, students have contact with many staff and faculty in both formal and informal settings. Programs and services are designed to promote self-discovery, leadership development, healthy behaviors and social responsibility as well as enjoyment.

Marist College is located in New York state, approximately 15 miles north on the left side of Route 9. Marist overlooks the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, New York, midway between New York City and Albany, the state capital.


Residential life is an integral part of the total educational experience. The residential life program at Marist College is based upon the philosophy of providing students with a safe, healthy, and attractive living environment that supports and supplements the educational mission of the College. Marist College provides housing for over 3,000 undergraduate students in corridor, suite, apartment and townhouse style residences.

Students are housed using a 'rites of passage' philosophy, which recognizes that a student's developmental stage should be supported by his/her living environment. Therefore freshmen students are housed in residence halls designed to promote social interaction, and are staffed with individuals trained to work with freshmen and their specific adjustments.

As students move from freshmen to senior year they are housed in more independent living environments (suite style, apartments and townhouses) which helps to prepare them for their eventual move out into the world following graduation. Along the way they acquire certain freedoms and responsibilities that will help them develop into mature and responsible citizens.
