New London was founded in 1646 by John Winthrop and settlers from Massachusetts Bay Colony. (Yes, New London is named after London, England.)

Our home city is connected to the sea - literally. The Thames River empties into Long Island Sound, and the region has a long relationship with the water through fisheries, commercial shipping, and recreation. There are also deep roots in the military including a historic shipbuilding industry, the Navy Submarine Base and, of course, the Coast Guard Academy.

Key attractions in New London include parks, historic sites, museums, and the waterfront. The recently completed downtown waterfront park hosts a variety of public festivals and celebrations.

New London is midway between New York and Boston, and served by excellent air, rail, and highway systems. First class cadets in good standing may have cars on campus. Cadets and their families often enjoy visiting historic Mystic, just minutes away.
