The Seeing Eye is located on a 60-acre campus nestled in historic Washington Valley, just outside Morristown, New Jersey, and 35 miles west of New York City. Although located in a quiet rural neighborhood, the campus is minutes away from downtown Morristown and a quick train-ride away from New York City.
While the main campus is home to the administrative offices, student residence, veterinary clinic and kennels, The Seeing Eye also has a training facility in downtown Morristown and a 330-acre breeding station in nearby Chester, N.J.

Morristown – Our Classroom
Located just outside the town limits of Morristown, The Seeing Eye has utilized the streets and businesses of this historic town as its extended classroom since moving from Nashville, Tenn., in 1931. Instructors train the dogs there daily, and most days, students train with their new dogs around the town square, known as The Green, and in surrounding neighborhoods.
Town officials and business owners alike are proud to say they are part of the training process, as dogs and teams-in-training are welcomed into stores, restaurants, the county courthouse and other public facilities, all as part of the instructional program. Just blocks away from the town center are bucolic hills and farms, so students have an opportunity to train in settings that parallel whatever surroundings they have back home.
Founded in 1715 and the site of key events in the American Revolution, Morristown is rich in history. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Morristown one of its Dozen Distinctive Destinations in the United States. Visitors to Morristown can enjoy unique shops, restaurants, theaters, parks, and historic sites.

On The Seeing Eye’s campus just outside Morristown, N.J., the main building includes a student residence made up of 24 private rooms with private baths, a technology center, exercise room, library, and lounges.

During down-time, students can stroll with their new dogs around a 1/3-mile leisure path or spend a moment next to a gurgling fountain in the Memory Garden, dedicated in 2007 to the memory of all past Seeing Eye® dogs.
