ExperienceGoucher

Goucher students study and socialize in an open and friendly campus. You'll find a lot of support, and, with plenty to do and countless ways to get involved, you'll always be engaged.

Where You Live


Our 287-acre wooded campus provides a restful retreat just outside a bustling city, and our in-progress First Year Village for new students puts the latest research on higher education success into practice. Goucher is designed to help you thrive.

Who You'll Meet


Building relationships with your peers and learning how to work with people who are different from you are essential for success in college and beyond.

Who You'll Meet

"I have memories of just being in a dorm room with friends, hanging out and laughing. I had a lot of laughs at Goucher."

– Rebecca Bell ’13

Where You Eat


Dining options probably shouldn't be the deciding factor in your college selection, but since you do need to eat, Goucher's variety of options include vegetarian, vegan, and kosher, and consistently put us near the top of Princeton Review's "best food on campus" ratings.
