Welcome to New College

New College of Florida is located on Sarasota Bay in the northern end of Sarasota County, across from the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. We are situated in the emerging University district, an area of higher education, culture and arts along North Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) that includes New College of Florida, University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, the Florida State University Ringling Center for the Cultural Arts and the Ringling College of Art and Design. We are just a few miles from downtown Sarasota and 50 miles from the City of Tampa.
