Campus/Resources

PLEASE NOTE: For fall 2021 our classes will be online.  

While we are offering classes online, all the campus information below (except the instructions below for using the Moodle) is NOT valid, so please disregard it.

The Vassar College LLI Moodle is a website where presenters can share resources such as a PDF file, a photo, a short film, a piece of music, or a link to something elsewhere on the web with the members of their class. You can access the page to see if your presenter has placed material for your course, read the material, or download it.

Select from the following:

Parking and Shuttle

Parking and Shuttle

  • Park in the South Parking Lot of Vassar College (entrance off Raymond Avenue near the corner of Raymond & Hooker). There is an all-day shuttle from there to Blodgett and Kenyon. You may also call the shuttle (845-437-5221) from any location on campus and they will come and give you a ride, but please allow enough time. Unfortunately, there is only a few general parking spots available near Blodgett and Kenyon, so don’t count on finding one.
  • If you prefer to park and walk, please park in one of the following lots:
    • North Lot
    • Walker Field House Parking
    • Collegeview Ave General Parking
  • Physically Challenged Accessible Parking is available adjacent to Blodgett, Kenyon, Wimpfheimer Nursery School and Ely Lots.  However, parking is limited to a few DESIGNATED physically challenged spaces only.  Please do not use these spaces for all day parking unless it is absolutely unavoidable for you. If you use one, you must have a physically challenged parking permit.


To be clear: please park in one of the lots above.  DO NOT PARK in the Blodgett circle, Wimpfheimer Nursery School or at Kenyon Hall unless dropping off supplies, and then only for the time needed to drop supplies.  Thank you!
