At Simmons, you’ll work, discover, and evolve

Located in the heart of Boston, Simmons University is a private university that has established a model of higher education that only today are other colleges and universities beginning to adopt: the rigorous intellectual foundation of the liberal arts combined with education for leadership in high-demand professional fields.

To support our students in their success, we provide a state-of-the-art learning and living environment that integrates in-classroom learning with the social, emotional, and ethical development at the core of all higher education.

The result is a Simmons graduate prepared not only to work, but to lead in professional, civic, and personal life —a vision of empowerment that Simmons calls preparation for life’s work.
