Northeastern and its students are an integral part of Boston, enriching the city and being enriched by it, and by the social, intellectual, and creative energy that gives this historic hub a very real 21st century buzz.
Located between the Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall on Boston's Avenue of the Arts, our 73-acre main campus is close to everything Boston has to offer: art and culture, sports and recreation, dining and shopping, the perspective of history combined with the vision of high technology.
Boston is also known as the "ultimate college town," which conveys its rich social scene and status as a mecca for higher education. But for Northeastern students, the Boston area's educational value goes well beyond its large number of colleges and universities and cultural institutions.
The region's businesses, financial institutions, government agencies, media outlets, and laboratories offer outstanding opportunities for professional and research co-ops. And Northeastern's partnerships with nonprofit institutions and neighborhood groups in Boston and surrounding communities give students service opportunities that help transform their understanding of problems and policies affecting the region, the nation, and the world.
