Facilities at Colgate

We offer an idyllic setting for learning while providing the most modern of facilities to ensure our students and faculty have the tools they need for research and academic exploration.

Case library as seen at sunset
The blend of old and new is evidenced throughout campus. Hascall Hall, built in 1884, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby is the Ho Science Center, the home to a high-tech visualization lab and classrooms that foster multidisciplinary studies since 2007.

Students and faculty work on a variety of instrumentation in research labs, including chemistry students at Wynn Hall who work on a dual-beam X-ray diffractometer, one of only two instruments in the nation at a primarily undergraduate institution.

The Case Library and Geyer Center for Information Technology houses a wealth of digital and print resources that supports the collaborative learning central to studying the liberal arts.

And when it's time to exercise the body, faculty, staff, and students flock to the Trudy Fitness Center, Huntington Gym, and Lineberry Natatorium, which are all busy from early morning to late evening.

The ALANA Cultural Center and O'Connor Student Center provide important social hubs for students on campus while university properties in the village of Hamilton like the Colgate Bookstore, The Barge coffeehouse, and Hamilton Theater provide shopping and entertainment venues.
