Welcome to the Krame Center located at Ramapo College of NJ. The College’s 300 acre campus, formerly the Birch Estate, combines rural beauty with suburban convenience. Located in northern Bergen County on Route 202, Ramapo is just five minutes from major highways such as I-287, the New York State Thruway, and Route 17, and is approximately 40 minutes northwest of New York City. Ramapo College’s proximity to major urban areas eliminates costly travel time while still offering a tranquil and scenic site for an enjoyable retreat, lecture, workshop or event.  We hope to see you soon.

NOTE: July 19 until October 2017 – Road Closure Route 202 Culvert Replacement Project will close a section of Route 202 closest to the South Gate entrance to the College. Please leave extra time.  For more information and to plan accordingly, please click here.
