Life at Lyme

The studio is the center of your day at Lyme Academy College, but after classes end the campus takes on another life. With studios open until midnight or beyond, many students work late into the night, creating, collaborating and having fun.

Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts Student Life

Weekends aren’t just for homework; they’re for hiking in the local hills, walking along our pleasant beaches or just relaxing in one of our quaint coffee shops. For those in need of a little more excitement, Connecticut’s capital city of Hartford and the vibrant college town of New Haven, where Yale University is located, are both less than 45 minutes away. Similarly, New York and Boston are both just two hours by train or car.
