The Cambridge and Boston Advantage

Lesley University is a close-knit academic community within the bustling cultural hub of Cambridge, a short T-ride away from Boston.

Lesley students benefit from the unparalleled advantages of being right in the heart of a major political, technological, business, and cultural center. The Boston metropolitan area houses the highest concentration of colleges and universities in the United States. Lesley shares Cambridge with Harvard and MIT. Other neighboring institutions include Tufts, Brandeis, Wellesley, Northeastern, Boston College, Boston University, and many more. These institutions form a world-class intellectual community in which Lesley students can fully participate.

The city's cultural life offers great distinction and variety, including museums, theatres, concert halls, galleries, libraries, bookstores, cafés, restaurants, clubs, lectures, and sports events for every taste and inclination. The rolling hills and spectacular mountains to the north and the breathtaking shoreline of Cape Cod to the south give Lesley a context of great natural beauty and seasonal diversity. The riches of Cambridge and Boston immeasurably enhance Lesley's campus life, and Lesley students enjoy and benefit from moving back and forth between their own close-knit community and the exciting world around them.
