One Clarkson, Three Locations
Golden Knights ignite connections across fields, industries, and cultures at our three physical campus locations in New York State.
Main Campus - Potsdam, NY
Set within 640 wooded and waterfront acres, our main campus is where our college students experience everything Clarkson has to offer: residence halls, academic buildings, athletic facilities, state-of-the-art research centers, and more.
The Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries is Clarkson’s Hudson Valley campus. Located on Dennings Point in Beacon, NY, the campus’s concept was conceived in 2000, and the site was selected three years later. Today, this state-of-the-art technical facility just north of New York City serves as an introduction to the surrounding park and as a research institute striving to develop more sustainable water solutions that preserve estuaries and other freshwater ecosystems in the state and beyond. This mission is achieved through the efforts of our faculty and staff and K-12 and public programming.
Capital Region Campus
Close to many industries that rely on Clarkson's research and educational opportunities for employees, the Capital Region Campus is the headquarters for the Office of Graduate Admissions, which also supports graduate enrollment at the main campus in Potsdam, and offers both in-person and hybrid graduate and certificate programs.
