Waltham/Boston

Boston is the premier "college town" in the United States, with something for just about everyone, including the more than 300,000 students who make the Boston area their academic home.

The Boston area's public transportation system — the "T" — connects Brandeis with Greater Boston. The MBTA makes destinations in Waltham, Boston, Cambridge, and beyond readily accessible for everything from off-campus housing to internships and research opportunities. Getting into the city is easy — the Brandeis shuttle makes almost 30 trips a week into Boston, and the walk to both the Brandeis/Roberts commuter train stop and the local bus only takes a couple of minutes.

Most Heller students live in the neighborhoods and communities surrounding campus. Affordable housing and apartments make the Waltham area very attractive to Heller students. This fact, along with Waltham's rich cultural history, allows students to experience life off campus just minutes from home.
