Main Campus - New Rochelle
MediaLibrary#6257
The Main Campus of The College of New Rochelle is located on 20 beautiful acres in southeastern Westchester County, 16 miles from midtown Manhattan and less than a mile away from the Long Island Sound.

The tree-lined suburban campus consists of more than 20 buildings, most reflecting the Gothic style of Leland Castle, built in the 1850s, a national historic site and the first home of the College.

The Main Campus is also home to the Mother Irene Gill Memorial Library; the Mooney Center, home to computer classrooms and labs, a TV studio and editing room, Romita Auditorium, art studios, and galleries; and the Wellness Center, which houses a gymnasium, running track, fitness and weights room, and a six-lane NCAA competition size swimming pool.

Classes for all four schools -- the School of Arts & Sciences, School of Nursing, School of New Resources, and the Graduate School -- are held at the Main Campus.
