Instructional Facilities:
Barrytown Campus:
The main campus is approximately two hours north of New York City and located in Barrytown, New York. UTS sits on 250 acres overlooking the Hudson River with a view of the Catskills. There are hiking trails throughout the wooded areas, fields and along Tivoli Bay. In 2006 UTS joined with the Winnakee Land Trust of Rhinebeck to open a public trail known as “Father's Trail” as part of the New York State Greenway Heritage Trail, which when complete will run the length of the Hudson River from Albany to New York City. The main building for the Barrytown campus houses the main classrooms, offices, library, dining areas, five large dormitories, a gymnasium, a student life area, meeting spaces and guest rooms. At its center stands the Chapel, the center of the seminary’s spiritual life.
The Barrytown Conference Center occupies the northwest wing of the Main Building. Its facilities include an auditorium which seats over 400, a lecture hall which seats over 100, a separate dining area, offices, two dorms and several guestrooms. Across from the main building is the Massena House, the oldest building on the property and an historical landmark. The facility houses guest rooms and meeting rooms.
New York City Campus:
Located in the heart of Manhattan, the New York City campus houses the commuter-based Masters programs. The facility includes classroom space, faculty and administrative offices, student lounge, computer room and library. Metropolitan New York City is also the location in which graduate students fulfill their field education internships and clinical pastoral education chaplaincy units.

Facilities and Services for Students with Disabilities:
UTS will provide reasonable accommodation in the form of auxiliary aids and services for students with disabilities.  These accommodations will be determined on a case-by-case and course-by-course basis whether a need exist, based on documentation, and may include test accommodations, assistive technology, tutoring services, and similar types of services. The Vice-President for Academic Affairs administers and coordinates services for those graduate students with special needs. The Director of Student Life administers and coordinates services for those undergraduate students with special needs.
Career and Job Placement Services:
Advisement at UTS is predicated on the understanding that each student is ultimately responsible to find his or her own placement or, in the case of those who have made a prior commitment, to fulfilling that commitment with integrity.
Career development assists with career planning, decision-making, and professional employment opportunities for students and alumni. Career development offers opportunities and resources to:
        • Explore vocation, mission and vision through individual counseling
        • Explore career options through the resource library
        • Self-assessment through tests and tools
        • Confidence building for interviews through mock interviews, wardrobe selection, negotiating techniques, social media presence, resume workshops, and individual counseling.
        • Actual interviews with potential employers on campus
