ESF Campuses

ESF Regional Campuses

ESF manages eight regional properties, located in three distinct ecological sub-regions, giving students, faculty, and researchers access to unparalleled learning and research opportunities. The size, scope, and ecological diversity of ESF's regional properties make it unique among institutions of higher education. The properties serve as an outdoor classroom and laboratory for teaching, demonstration, and research by faculty, students, and staff at SUNY ESF. Together, these lands constitute one of the largest college campuses in the world. 

Use of Regional Campuses

ESF welcomes students, faculty, staff, and researchers to use the forests and field stations for teaching, research, and other related activities. Non-ESF affiliated users may request use of the forests or field stations if the request does not interfere with ESF-related activities. Non-ESF users may be required to obtain a temporary revocable permit and provide proof of insurance.
