Just a short walk over the Housatonic River, the town of Kent serves as an extension of campus.

Sharing a neighborhood creates relationships between Kent students and local residents and shop owners. Residents think of the students as a vital part of life in the town, and Kent students feel the same way.

The town of Kent is one of Kent School’s greatest assets, and the reverse is also true.

Kent School and the town of Kent have felt a close bond for more than 100 years. Kent students often participate in local traditions, while the School welcomes residents to campus for events, from sports to theater to Chapel and beyond.

Being close to the Town of Kent gives students independence, provides options for food, culture, and shopping, and offers a break from busy school life, even if just to grab an ice cream with friends.

Aside from attracting shoppers and diners, Kent also appeals to those who love the outdoors. Visitors can walk the Appalachian Trail, which runs through both campus and town, or hike in two nearby state parks. Its notable charm earned the Town of Kent a spot on Smithsonian Magazine’s 20 best small towns to visit in the U.S. With its small size and accessibility, Kent inspires a feeling of home.
