Our Campus

Discover the beauty, serenity and robustness of Ramapo and its surroundings

Ramapo College is situated on a beautiful tree-filled 300-acre campus – right across the road from the Ramapo Valley Reservation – with plenty of scenic walks, and hiking and biking trails. Campgaw Mountain Ski Center is down the road and four other ski resorts are just a short drive away. Within 10 minutes of campus, there are two public golf courses.

Visit the “iconic” Jersey Shore in a quick 1.5-2 hour drive.

Take the Ramapo Roadrunner Express to the Westfield Garden State Plaza and hop on a bus to New York City. While you are there, be sure to see a show, wander through the museums, and visit famous landmarks.
