From the new Gund Gallery to the Kenyon Athletic Center, facilities are state-of-the-art. And they're often architecturally stunning. Century-old stone and sleek contemporary glass harmonize on a campus that has been ranked as one of the world’s most beautiful.
You will enjoy three meals daily in Kenyon’s newly restored historic Peirce Hall, featuring an extensive farm-to-table local foods program. Peirce’s modern and spacious Alumni Dining Room, with an outdoor dining patio with spectacular views of the countryside, or the intimate Pierce Pub, will be your home for dining buffet-style throughout the week. When class is not in session, the dining room is also a perfect location to read, write, and connect with your new colleagues.
North Campus Apartments
Participants live in Kenyon’s new air-conditioned townhouse apartments, each of which includes private rooms along with a full kitchen and living/dining area shared with three other participants. Built in 2011 and 2012, the townhouses are Kenyon’s newest and most modern residences, located just five minutes on foot from the center of campus.
Kenyon Athletic Center (KAC)
Kenyon’s outstanding athletic facilities include outdoor and indoor tennis courts, an indoor pool, indoor and outdoor tracks, squash and racquetball courts, and a well-equipped fitness room. With its soaring glass walls and dramatic views, the KAC is considered not only one of the best equipped but also one of the most beautiful small-college athletic centers in the country.
Brown Family Environmental Center
This 380-acre nature preserve bordering the Kokosing River includes woodland, prairie, and wetland habitats, as well as gardens. You can ramble along the eight miles of hiking trails.
Kokosing Gap Trail
Cyclists, runners, joggers, walkers, and in-line skaters enjoy this paved 14-mile path, which runs along the river, traverses woodlands, and borders farm fields. The trail passes through the Kenyon campus, with easy access near both the athletic facilities and the environmental center.
Academic facilities range from elegant wood-paneled seminar rooms, to modern computer- and projector-equipped spaces, to intimate recital halls that are ideal for readings or performances. Small classrooms and seminar rooms abound, in both historic and newer buildings, and a number of the College’s modern buildings include larger lecture halls or auditoriums.
