Marlboro’s campus is so picturesque and inviting it is easy to call home. But the college works to foster a sense of connection between the campus and the wider community, from doing service projects in the area to sponsoring local events. As an intellectual center and professional development resource, Marlboro plays an essential role in the economic and cultural life of the southern Vermont region.

Town of Marlboro
The Marlboro College campus is located in the town of Marlboro, in southern Vermont. Tucked on its own Potash Hill, the college is an integral part of the town, a community of less than 1,000 where many staff, faculty, and students are active citizens. Some of the many benefits shared by both the college and the town include a volunteer fire company, a community newsletter called the Marlboro Mixer, cross-country ski trails, the Marlboro Historical Society, the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum, the Marlboro Community Fair, and the January Book Swap. Marlboro is also the site of the world famous Marlboro Music Festival, which occupies the campus during the summer.
Marlboro offers many recreational opportunities, including hiking, biking, swimming, paddling, and cross-country skiing on an extensive network of trails that start right on campus. The town of Marlboro is only 30 minutes from the Appalachian Trail, 20 minutes from Mount Snow ski resort, and an hour from hiking trails up storied Mount Monadnock or the world-class whitewater of Zoar Gap.
