Beyond Campus

Image of the skyline in Boston Massachusetts

Lasell's campus offers the best of both worlds. A tree-lined campus of Victorian houses and modern buildings on a 54-acre campus in suburban Newton, Massachusetts. Yet only eight miles to downtown Boston and all the city has to offer. We are a 10-minute walk to two MBTA stations and near both route 95 and the Mass Pike, so you have easy access to internships, events, or outings in Boston or throughout New England.


Boston is known as a college town. Over 250,000 students attend college in the surrounding area. 

Lasell students can walk or talk the campus shuttle to the nearby Riverside T-station for a quick trip into the city. 

It’s easy to get to a Red Sox, or Celtics, or Bruins game. Or head out for dinner or shopping on Newbury Street or in the North End. See a show in the Theatre District. Go to a concert or visit a museum. And, take advantage of internships at the many leading corporations and organizations that are in the Boston area.
