Daemen College is located on a 46.5-acre campus in Amherst, New York, recently named the #1 place to live in New York State by Money Magazine. The suburban location gives students the best of all possible worlds – a beautifully landscaped campus, a walkable village just a mile-and-a-half down the road, and easy access to the vibrant Buffalo-Niagara region.
Daemen is easily accessible by major rail, plane, and motor routes. The College is less than five minutes from exit 50 of the New York State Thruway. The Greater Buffalo International Airport, serviced by most major airlines, is just a fifteen-minute drive from the campus.
The City of Buffalo is just five miles away and it’s in the midst of a resurgence. Buffalo continues to receive accolades and honors, such as Travel and Leisure listing Buffalo as #1 on the “America’s Favorite Cities” list in 2016, National Geographic listing Buffalo as #3 on the “Top Ten Food Cities” (in the world) list in 2015 and Time Magazine including Buffalo on its top 25 list for cities where Millennials are moving in 2017.
The region has an eclectic food scene, vibrant arts and cultural organizations, incredibly robust architecture, a variety of established and emerging industries, and – many locals will tell you – the nicest, most down-to-earth and helpful people of any city in the world.
