Our Campus

Boston: The Best College Town

At Simmons, we're right in the heart of Boston — and there's so much to do and see in this city! Our campus is surrounded by art, music, history, cultural institutions and the famous Newbury Street. We're steps away from historic Fenway Park, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Longwood Medical Area.

Boston is the largest city in the New England region and has a well-earned reputation as the best "college town" in the U.S., with more than 50 colleges and universities in the Greater Boston area.

Getting Around

Our main campus and residence campus are located in Boston's vibrant Fenway neighborhood. We are easily reachable by car and our campus can be navigated via our campus map.

Boston is a walking city — allowing our students to walk to numerous cafes, colleges, museums, shops, parks, performance venues and movie theaters.

Our students also utilize the MBTA, Boston's public transportation system. By hopping on the train, our students explore Harvard Square, the North End, Revere Beach, Jamaica Plain and more!
