Marlboro College is located in southern Vermont, 90 minutes from Hartford, Connecticut (the nearest airport), two-and-a-half hours from Boston and four hours from Montreal and New York City. The campus is tucked into Vermont's scenic hills in the small town of Marlboro, 10 miles from the vibrant community of Brattleboro. This location offers the best of southern Vermont in terms of accessibility, local culture, and solitude.

Southern Vermont offers students many opportunities for enjoying the rural flavor of New England throughout the year. Winter in Vermont means snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and sledding, while spring brings maple sugaring, wildflower walks, and whitewater rafting. In the summer there are swimming holes, mountain biking trails, and more farmers' markets per capita than any other state. Autumn is time for pressing cider, local harvest fairs, gawking at the amazing fall foliage, and visiting Vermont's more than 100 covered bridges.
