Around Town

Dutchess Community College is located in the beautiful and historic mid-Hudson Valley, 80 miles north of Manhattan and 90 miles south of Albany. The area is renowned for sites including the home and museum of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt’s Val-Kill retreat, the Vanderbilt mansion, the Samuel Morse estate and Dia:Beacon, a contemporary art museum.

Just minutes from the campus are the Walkway Over the Hudson (the longest pedestrian bridge over water in the world), the Dutchess County Rail Trail and other hiking, biking and outdoor recreational opportunities.

Three other colleges – Vassar, Marist and the Culinary Institute of America – are within a few miles of the DCC campus and SUNY New Paltz is less than 30 minutes away.

DCC is easily accessible by Metro-North and Amtrak train service.
