Campus Life

Nichols is a place where you can find your passion. Whether in class, at play, sharing a meal in the Student Commons, or just sitting in a quiet spot talking with a friend, the campus is a place where students share feelings of familiarity, trust and belonging. Plus, with over 35 student organizations, 20 varsity sports, three international exchange programs and leading-edge programs in music, dance, theatre and art, students of all ages have countless opportunities to explore and enrich themselves every day.

Modeled like a small liberal arts college, Nichols' 30-acre campus has plenty of spaces to study, train, create and relax. Students walk along tree-lined sidewalks between classes. Many of our buildings retain their classic 19th century character with a modern flare: Large book collections populate the bookshelves of classrooms, student artwork decorates the hallways, and our state-of the art technology encourages students learning and innovation. The School is minutes away from galleries, historic houses, Olmstead parks and The Buffalo Zoo and our faculty harness all these environments to expand our students' learning.
