The museums on Bowdoin's campus include the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, and the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum. Notable Buildings include Massachusetts Hall, Hubbard Hall, the Parker Cleaveland House and the Harriet Beecher Stowe House.
Bowdoin is a vibrant residential college nestled in a small, active New England town, but that is just the beginning. Our location places a wealth of landscapes and environments at our fingertips: To the south we have easy access to city life in Portland and Boston; to the north is the rich tradition of communities who have lived off the land for generations; to the west is the playground of lakes, rivers, and mountains; and to the east is the coastline representing so much that is central to the world’s issues today, from global warming and the health of our oceans to honoring and preserving the world’s beautiful landscapes.
All first-year students live in one of eight residential halls. Upperclass students either participate in an annual “housing lottery” to choose from a variety of on-campus room and apartment configurations or apply to live in one of our eight College Houses. Housing is guaranteed for first-year and sophomore students; historically we have also accommodated any junior or senior who desired on-campus housing.
