Welcome, neighbor!

Part of the charm of Washington College is its location and the people who live here. Within walking distance of campus, downtown Chestertown is populated with friendly neighbors who make our students feel at home. We want you to feel equally at home on our campus. We welcome local residents to attend events, readings, and lectures on campus, to use Miller Library, and to cheer on our athletic teams.

The Johnson Fitness Center is open to members of The 1782 Society who pay a nominal fee in addition to their annual contribution, and the Casey Swim Center offers community memberships.

In addition to various “Friends” organizations (Friends of Miller Library, Friends of the Arts, for instance), the Washington College Academy of Lifelong Learning and the Women’s League of Washington College always welcome new members. We are grateful to all of our friends and neighbors who choose to give to Washington College.
