The Paier College campus consists of five buildings located in Hamden, CT (pop. 59,000), in a neighborhood setting within a suburban locale just north of New Haven (pop. 124,000). Eight colleges and universities, as well as other cultural centers the Yale Gallery, the Peabody Museum, the Mellon Center for British Art; the Beinecke Rare Book Library; the Shubert, Long Wharf, and Yale Repertory Theaters; as well as many other visual and performing arts facilities are all within easy access to the College. Greater New Haven also offers a wide array of restaurants, hotels, shopping malls, and historic sites, as well as entertainment and recreational areas that provide a varied and stimulating environment for Paier students.
Paier is also situated just minutes south of the Wilbur Cross Parkway (Rte. 15) and is within easy reach of the Hartford Capital region (38 miles), New York City (78 miles), and Boston (154 miles) by car, bus, or train. Connecticut, southernmost of the New England states, offers access to beaches, lakes, rivers, mountains, and a variety of scenic and outdoor activities. In fact, all of the northeast, rich in the traditions of early America, and alive with creative energy and a long-standing commitment to education, surrounds the Paier student with almost limitless opportunities of diverse cultural experience.
