Located along the Erie Canal, the Village of Brockport is a quaint town with around 8,300 residents. The campus is conveniently located between two major metropolitan cities within commuting distance of Buffalo and just a 25-minute drive to Rochester.
Once home to Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, Rochester now is home to major corporations and professional sporting leagues (Amerks hockey, Red Wings baseball, and Rhinos soccer). The arts maintain a vital presence in the city’s life through private galleries and theatre leagues, including the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography, the Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester Museum and Science Center and Strasenburgh Planetarium.

Visual Studies Workshop
Located in the Neighborhood of the Arts in downtown Rochester, the Visual Studies Workshop is home to our Master of Fine Arts in Visual Studies program. It’s a community of interest in the media arts that supports and encourages the development of images in all their myriad forms including series, sequence, installation, film and video, and digital media.
Also in Rochester is Brockport Downtown, our downtown extension site that offers graduate and selected undergraduate courses at a location convenient for those who work in the city or who live in the metropolitan area or its eastern suburbs.
