Directions and Accommodations

Hobart and William Smith Colleges lies in the heart of the Finger Lakes region and is easily accessible from the NY Thruway and a number of other routes. The campus is approximately one hour from the Rochester (ROC) or Syracuse (SYR) airports. Train service is available via those two cities as well; the train does not stop in Geneva, however so those wishing to take the train will need to arrange for car or bus transport from the Syracuse or Rochester station to Geneva.
