Our Island Campus


Loomis Chaffee is sometimes to referred to as "the Island." We earned the nickname because the campus sits at the confluence of the Farmington and Connecticut rivers. So on occasion, we experience some flooding on the Meadows, pictured above. These are some of the most beautiful playing fields in New England. 


The Pearse Hub for Innovation, as known as the PHI, is the place for students to bring their ideas to life. This collaborative space houses equipment such as laser cutters, 3D printers, woodworking machinery, and virtual reality gear. 


The iconic cupola sits atop Founders Hall, the school's main administration building as well as one of its first. 


There are plenty of outdoor seating areas on campus to enjoy the lovely summer weather. 


The Scanlan Campus Center houses our dining halls, food court, student center, and bookstore as well as the Pearse Hub for Innovation. 


Students are often found hanging out together in the courtyard outside of Richmond, Cutler, and Kravis halls — three of the school's newest dormitories and the three used by the Loomis Chaffee Summer Program. 


After choosing among the many great meal options in the Food Court, students can sit down and enjoy their meal with friends in one of our spacious and beautiful dining halls. 


The Food Court in the Scanlan Campus Center offers many options for students, including daily gluten-free and vegetarian selections. 


Katharine Brush Library is open all summer long for use by our Loomis Chaffee Summer Program students. 


Summer Program students are housed in one of three of our 12 dormitories. Above, students in Cutler Hall enjoy a break before study hall. 


Our 350-acre campus is situated in the beautiful Connecticut River valley and is six miles north of Hartford, our state's capital; and 6 miles south of Bradley International Airport with easy access to Interstate-91, New York City and Boston.
