Life on Campus

Life in the heart of Boston is energetic and bustling, but on the Simmons Campus you'll find friendly faces, a welcoming atmosphere, and lots to do. From our nine residence halls to our state-of-the-art athletic facilities to our variety of dining halls and cafes, you'll feel right at home, whether you live on campus or not.

Simmons Housing

A short walk from the main campus, Simmons's gated residence campus offers a private refuge in the heart of the city. Nine brick residence halls enclose a grassy quad where students relax or study on sunny days. Bartol Dining Hall, Holmes Sports Center, the campus health center, and the Quadside Cafe are located here.

Simmons's residence halls offer special-interest housing, including a foodie floor, sports pride floor, and wellness areas that emphasize holistic health. Handicapped accessible rooms are available, as well as rooms for visitors and commuter students needing the occasional overnight stay. All first-year students are guaranteed housing.

Fast facts:

  • Most rooms are doubles, some quadruples, singles, and triples
  • Free Campus-wide Wifi and high-speed internet access is available in each room
  • Cable TV in every room
  • The Simmons phone system offers local service, voice mail, and reduced long-distance rates

Additional amenities include laundry facilities, student kitchens, lounges with TVs, pianos, study rooms, a multi-faith prayer room, and a computer lab.
