Living on the Santa Fe Campus

The Santa Fe campus sits atop the highest altitude city in America. From the college’s Rocky Mountain perch, students gather in close community to read, study and talk. After seminar, passionate conversations continue, spilling out into the campus’s two cafes, lively bookstore, and balcony parties. Late into the night, students can be found creating original work at band rehearsal and in the student art gallery, pottery studio and woodshop.

And at all hours, students are at the gym playing intramurals, on the grassy field for archery and soccer, and hiking up the Atalaya trailhead. For those who want to get off campus, downtown Santa Fe’s arts, culture, and food scene are a short bike ride away and the Santa Fe ski basin is a half-hour up the mountain.


Students never share a single room on the Santa Fe campus – and many residences include balconies and courtyards.
