Connecticut College for Women, chartered in 1911 by the State of Connecticut, is a liberal college of arts and sciences for the higher education of women, located in New London, Connecticut.
New London is on the Shore Line of the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad, one hundred and six miles from Boston, and one hundred and twenty-six miles from New York. It has direct communication by way of Saybrook Junction with Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts. It is the terminus of the Central Vermont Railroad, of the New London Line of the New England Steamship Company, and of various trolley lines.
The college grounds, approximately three hundred and fifty acres, lie within the limits of the City of New London, a mile and a half from the railroad station. The grounds extend on both sides of Williams Street and Mohegan Avenue to Benham Avenue on the north, and reach on the east to the Thames River.
The College may be reached from the railroad station by the "Norwich" trolley, stopping at the college entrance—a ten minute ride. The college buildings are near this point of entrance. The southernmost building is New London Hall, in which the offices of administration are housed.
