- Bowdoin's 205-acre campus, with 116 buildings, is a brief walk from downtown Brunswick, Maine. The town of 22,000 people is 25 miles from Portland, and approximately 120 miles from Boston. Brunswick, the state's largest town, brings together elements of both city and country living, including cultural offerings, a variety of restaurants, and numerous activities for the outdoor enthusiast. On campus, you will find the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, the Bowdoin Library and more of what Bowdoin has to offer.
- Bowdoin College is a place whose long history is rich in tradition and full of amusing anecdotes. Explore Bowdoin's history, discover its traditions and the meaning behind the symbols you see around campus, and listen to the school's alma mater.
- The historic building contains the modernized 610-seat Pickard Theater and the 150-seat Wish Theater in a pavilion linked to Memorial Hall by a glass atrium. New support space houses a scene shop, a costume shop and storage, rehearsal spaces and dressing rooms for the theater and dance programs. Other campus buildings range from Massachusetts Hall, built in 1802, to Kanbar Hall, a 26,000-square-foot award-winning educational facility that was completed in 2004; LEED certified "green" residence halls completed in 2005; a recital hall completed in 2007; and a fitness/wellness center completed in 2009.
- Bowdoin’s facilities extend to several sites at varying distances from the central campus. A new office building, the McLellan Building, located a few blocks from campus at 85 Union Street, houses Human Resources, Communications and Public Affairs, the Controller’s Office, art studios, and a large conference room. Bowdoin's Coastal Studies Center, located 8 miles from campus on 120 acres of Orr's Island, was completed in 1998.
