Campus Map and Facilities
Highlights of Our Facilities
Our 250-acre campus is set in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. We are just over two hours from Boston, in an area that has historically attracted tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. Highlights of White Mountain's campus includes a brand new dorm constructed and opened in 2020, the Catherine Houghton Arts Center, the Fred Steele Science Center, an impressive fitness center with a 3,500-square-foot climbing wall, a "black box"-style theater, a quad of four dormitories, a small farm, and the hub of campus: McLane Building.
Our campus also includes trails for hiking, mountain biking, and running, a swimming hole, and Hood's Hill—the perfect place for sledding, skiing, or snowboarding in the winter and lounging, garden games, or studying in warmer seasons.
Athletic Fields (Solar and Edge)
Beverly Selinger Buder Climbing Wall
Our 3,000-square-foot, 38-foot tall Beverly Selinger Buder Climbing Wall has a rope climbing section with 13 toprope anchors with an average of 32 climbing routes, ranging in difficulty from 5.2-5.12d. The Buder Climbing Wall also features a 500-square-foot bouldering area, which includes a seamless ground pad system and an average of 32 boulder problems for more skill-building and fun.
Black Box Theater
The Black Box Theater is home to theatrical productions, including student-written and directed plays.
Catherine Houghton Arts Center
The Catherine Houghton Arts Center, opened in 2014, houses our dance, music, and visual arts studios. The building is designed to have net-zero energy use through a geothermal heating and cooling system and a rooftop solar array.
Creative Edge Dance Studio
Our organic farm produces multiple varieties of vegetables, fruits, and berries and includes two additional indoor growing spaces. We also have a Sugar Shack, and each spring, we tap the maple trees on campus to turn into some of the best maple syrup around. In spring 2019 alone, 200 gallons of sap was collected! Syrup and other produce from The Farm are shared with the community or even featured at our Harvest Dinner during Fall Family and Alumnae/i Weekend.
The fitness center includes a basketball court, various cardio and strength machines, an Olympic-grade trampoline, and our 3,500-square-foot Beverly Selinger Buder Climbing Wall.
Fred Steele Science Center
The Fred Steele Science Center, opened in 2006, was designed as a net-zero energy use facility. It is outfitted with four well-equipped classroom laboratories, science faculty offices, a solar energy system, and composting toilets.
Inquiry, Innovation, and Impact Lab (I^3 Lab)
Lovejoy Chapel and the Ruhl Family Amphitheater
Depending on the season, we gather in one of these two places for Morning Meetings, presentations, community events, and performances. Lovejoy Chapel is connected to the McLane Building via a glass hallway, while the Ruhl Family Amphitheater is on the exterior of the Catherine Houghton Arts Center.
McGoldrick Library and Research Center
An open, airy, and vibrant learning commons with space for research, independent study, and small group discussion that supports our academic focus on student-driven inquiry.
McLane Building (Main Building)
McLane Building—often colloquially referred to as "the Main Building"—is the heart of campus. Here you will find classroom space; the Inquiry, Innovation, and Impact Lab (I^3 Lab); McGoldrick Library and Research Center; the Dining Hall; the student lounge; and faculty, staff, and administrative offices.
Home to our four dormitories: Burroughs, Carter, Hill House (pictured above), and the New Dorm. Faculty residences are located within or adjacent to each dormitory, and the first floor of Hill House contains the Office of Admission.
