Located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Wilson College’s campus has gracious lawns, mature trees and rolling hills. The beautiful 300-acre campus is on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district and the Conococheague Creek runs through it.
Six buildings serve as student housing and there are several facilities for athletics and equestrian competitions, including three athletic fields (field hockey, soccer and softball), tennis courts, a gymnasium and separate practice facility for gymnastics. A fitness center is housed in Lenfest Commons, along with a dance studio. Students have access to a nearby swimming pool. The Penn Hall Equestrian Center has three, 24-stall barns; two indoor arenas and an outdoor arena; cross-country jump course and turn-out fields. The College also provides complete equine-facilitated therapeutic facilities and equipment.
In addition, Wilson College has an organic farm—the heart of the Fulton Center for Sustainability Studies— that allows a wide range of opportunities to learn about approaches to sustainable living. In January 2009, the College opened the new $25 million Harry R. Brooks Complex for Science, Mathematics and Technology, the first Gold LEED-certified building in the area.
