Student Life

The Perfect Balance of Campus and City

Northeastern’s vibrant campus is a one-of-a-kind sanctuary of lush green spaces and tree-lined pathways located right in the heart of Boston. It truly is a campus within a city.

One of the country’s greatest walking cities, having Boston in your backyard opens you up to a cultural hub, with so much to see and do. Take a short walk or hop on the easy-to-use public transportation system (the “T”) to explore popular nearby destinations.
