Study at Northeastern’s Boston campus

The Boston campus offers a traditional American college experience in the heart of this thriving east coast city. Situated in the trendy neighborhood of Back Bay, the 73-acre Boston campus is close to the Museum of Fine Arts, Symphony Hall, outdoor spaces like the Boston Common, and Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox baseball team. Reliable public transportation (via the “T” subway system and several bus routes) makes it easy to access other parts of the city.
