Visitor Information

Easthampton, located in the Pioneer Valley, is an easy 90 miles drive west from Boston and 20 miles north from Hartford. The valley offers charming college towns, including Amherst and South Hadley, bustling cities including Northampton, along with the bucolic beauty of surrounding farmland. A region rich in history, the valley is the home to a vibrant arts community, buoyed by the Five Colleges.

Our students and faculty take advantage of the opportunities that surround our campus, including those through the Five Colleges. Students are able to explore Easthampton and Northampton, volunteer in local schools, and experience arts and athletics at the surrounding colleges and university.
