Our Campus

Phillips Exeter Academy is located in Exeter, a southern New Hampshire town which retains its 18th-century New England charm.

The in-town campus is divided by the three principal streets of the community, with Georgian-style classroom buildings placed prominently at the center. The surrounding dormitories are easily accessible from classrooms and other facilities, including an administrative building, post office, library, art gallery, music center, health center, bookstore, student center, theater, dining halls and athletic facilities.

Walkable Campus and Town

The walk from your dorm to class is short, taking only a minute from some dorms, under five minutes for others. Two dining halls make it easy to stop for a meal or snack near your next class.

You can walk to stores and restaurants in Exeter's downtown.
