Weekdays (Monday-Friday): From 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., guest parking is limited to Kober Parking Lot. Parking in any other lot without a permit will result in a ticket from College Security. During weekdays, we recommend that you travel to the College by train, bus, or taxi. However, if travel by car is necessary, please proceed to Westlands Gate, and Security will either inform you of the best place to park or issue a temporary parking pass.

Traveling by Plane

There are three major international airports—LaGuardia, JFK & Newark—that serve this region of New York. Once you arrive at the airport, you will find ground transportation booths located on the same level as baggage claim areas. Taxi and private car services are offered, and the address to share with the driver is 1 Mead Way, Bronxville, NY. 

There are also several different airport shuttle services that offer frequent service into Manhattan, and the boarding points at the airport are clearly marked. The shuttle services will have stops that are conveniently located within one block of Grand Central station, which is the only station that runs the Metro-North train line. From there you can take the Metro-North train to the Bronxville station. From the Bronxville train station, you can either take a cab or walk to Sarah Lawrence. The walk takes approximately 15 minutes. The following is information on the shuttle services:

  • New York Airport Service runs a bus shuttle service from LaGuardia, Kennedy, and Newark airports to various drop-off points in Manhattan such as Grand Central Station, Port Authority Bus Terminal, and Bryant Park.
  • New York City Airporter is similar to New York Airport Service. Make advance reservations online or call (718) 777-5111 or (855) 269-2247.
