The Sex Lives of College Girls is *finally* back for the highly anticipated second season. 

And although we love seeing Bela, Whitney, Kimberly and Leighton on our screens, we can’t help but dream about the prestigious Vermont school the girls attend, Essex College.

With amazing themed parties, extracurriculars and just overall American vibes, many Aussie fans were quick to fall in love with the university campus, and many were left wondering if Essex College is a real place. 

And although it isn’t (sad we know!), here’s everything we do know about the filming locations of the show.

Where is The Sex Lives of College Girls filmed? 

IMDb reveals the first season of The Sex Live of College Girls was filmed at Vassar College, a university in Poughkeepsie, New York, as well the Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank California. 

During the filming of the first season, Mindy Kaling even gave the town a shoutout, tweeting: “We loved shooting in beautiful ⁦Poughkeepsie! The town and people in it are the best. Our cast and crew loved every minute of our stay there.”

It’s a different story for season two, however. The show was filmed across the university of California in Los Angeles and the University of Washington’s Seattle campus.

Is Essex College Real? 

Despite the impressive set decorating, Essex College is not real. The series used a number of colleges across America to shoot exterior shots.
