Mitchell College celebrates and develops the power of unique minds.

Mitchell College is a unique, residential college offering timely degrees within a small, close-knit campus community. Mitchell has honed its distinct educational approach over 80 years, blending a tradition of mentoring with an expertise in teaching diverse learning styles to create the innovative Mitchell Ability Model. Through a journey of self-discovery, learning adaptability, four-year career development, and mastery of essential abilities, students are challenged, supported and equipped for lifelong success. 

Located on the beautiful  New England shoreline, at the mouth of the Thames River and entrance to Long Island Sound, Mitchell College is set on 68 acres in a safe residential neighborhood in the city of New London, Connecticut. Once a private estate, the campus is laid out across bluffs that slope to the water's edge, with rolling lawns and wooded walkways, sandy beaches, towering shade trees and indigenous landscaped gardens.
