A beautiful campus that feels like a private college
The Ellsworth campus is located in the north part of Iowa Falls, a scenic city with the Iowa River running right through it. The main campus includes 14 buildings (four are housing units), a beautiful blend of historic and modern architecture. The south Robert & Arlene Hamilton campus includes the impressive Ellworth Equestrian Center and the state-of-the-art Agriculture & Renewable Energy Center.
Agriculture & Renewable Energy Center is located on Highway 65 just south of Iowa Falls at 707 Ellsworth Avenue. It houses the agriculture, animal science, biotechnology and renewable energy programs.
Bullock Jones Hall contains the English and criminal justice departments, as well as offices for Iowa Valley Continuing Education.
Calkins Nature Area (Calkins Campus) is a cooperative project with the Hardin County Conservation Board and the Ellsworth College Trustees. The 76-acre farm, wildlife, and natural resource "laboratory" is open to the College (our conservation technology classes meet here frequently) as well as the community. Located along the Iowa River, the beautiful tract includes prairie, forest, and wetland environments. The nature center and museum, built in 1996, houses a laboratory and classroom, conference room, and museum exhibits.
