The College is situated on 350-acres of farmland, woods, cropland, and gardens. Townsend Hall is the centerpiece, housing administrative and faculty offices, a library, computing site, and several classrooms. Other facilities include Worrilow Hall, Fischer Greenhouse Laboratory, the Allen Biotechnology Laboratory, and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. An additional complex is located at the Research and Education Center in Georgetown, Delaware.

All facilities are used by students and faculty for teaching, research, and independent projects. The University Farm, adjacent to Townsend Hall, houses a 100-head dairy herd, an equine herd, flocks of sheep, a Black Angus cattle herd, and many types of poultry.
