Drew’s hometown, Madison, is located 30 miles west of Midtown Manhattan in the rolling foothills of northern New Jersey. The university is situated on a beautiful, wooded 186-acre campus that gives Drew its powerful sense of place and helps to shape its character. A stimulating environment for living and learning, the campus is also home to The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, an independent professional theatre, and to the Charles A. Dana Research Center for Scientists Emeriti, which is housed in Drew’s Hall of Sciences.

The campus is a short 10-minute walk from the Madison train station, which provides direct access to the cultural, educational and professional offerings of Manhattan via New Jersey Transit’s Midtown Direct Service. The university takes advantage of its proximity to New York by integrating field trips and off-campus study opportunities into the curriculum.

In addition to the invaluable resources of Manhattan, the surrounding County of Morris also provides unique opportunities.  Within minutes of Drew’s campus, for example, is one of the largest concentrations of corporate headquarters and research centers in the nation.  Also located within a one hour radius of Drew are the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, the Jersey Shore, Meadowlands Sports Complex, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and the ski resorts of the Pocono Mountains.

Madison, New Jersey, has a population of 16,000 and offers a vibrant downtown with convenient shopping, more than three dozen restaurants and a historic district, all within a short walk from campus.  Neighboring Morristown is the home of Washington’s Revolutionary War Headquarters and the Morristown National Historic Park at Jockey Hollow.

By car, Drew is easily accessible from major interstate highways — 287, 78, and 95 — and well-marked local routes. Drew is served by Newark-Liberty International Airport, which is approximately 15 miles away.
