Connecticut College was established in 1911 and is a private, coeducation college. Its history began in 1909 when Wesleyan University announced that it would no longer offer admission to women. At that time, more women than ever were seeking higher education and demanding the right to vote. A committee was formed and towns across the state of Connecticut began offering prospective sites. At Connecticut College, students and faculty work closely together to create a vibrant social, cultural and intellectual community enriched by diverse perspectives.
The campus is located on the Thames River, overlooking the long island sound on the highest point in New London in southeastern Connecticut. One can easily reach from Hartford, Providence, Boston and New York City by car, train, and bus, and from points beyond by rail and air.The main campus has three residential areas.
