Founded in 1836, with a creative spirit that grows exponentially every year, we’re the university that offers rigorous academics against a fairy tale-like backdrop you just can’t find anywhere else. We like to say our home in Alfred, New York, is just like us: one of a kind.
And in this village, you’ll find unreal sunset views, hundreds of acres of nature, crystal winters, and a magical valley of 1,800 creative geniuses who found their tribe, their second home, at Alfred University.
This is where bright, curious students go to freely explore, take creative risks, make mistakes, and then reach their goals.
This is where professors wholeheartedly care about your success—so much so that it’s nearly impossible to leave this place without everything you need to be a major player in the game of life.
This is where every single person feels included, feels part of a special kinship, and can honestly say, “These are my people.”
