Many of our alumni credit Nichols’ solid business education, nurturing atmosphere, and close-knit campus as the underpinning for their personal success.

The campus
Located in the sprawling hills of Dudley, Massachusetts, the scenic Nichols College campus is rooted firmly in the rural life of New England but is also conveniently less than an hour from five major cities, including Boston, and just three hours from New York.

The campus itself is a mix of historic and modern buildings, with classic New England architecture that sets the tone for learning. Many of our original halls have been beautifully renovated to incorporate the latest technology and encourage team-based learning.

Eighty percent of our day students live on campus in one of our 10 residential communities. Campus life is centered around the Fels Student Center, which features a variety of student-life offices and dedicated spaces for studying, collaborating, and learning.

Fitness and competition are core competencies for business leaders and successful professionals in every market. We place a premium on these skills with a storied history of championships across our 21 NCAA Division III athletic teams. We also proudly sponsor club teams and a variety of intramural activities.

The state-of-the-art Recreation and Athletic Center features a weight room, aerobics room, squash court, and an indoor multi-use facility for basketball and volleyball with an elevated running track. Outdoor facilities include the newly revamped Vendetti multi-purpose field, an eight-lane running track, tennis courts, basketball courts, a volleyball court, a campus-wide Frisbee golf course, and fields for baseball, softball, and soccer.
