Northeastern’s Neighborhood Welcome to Boston

Northeastern University is located in one of the city’s most interesting and culturally diverse areas. For more than 100 years, the University has extended beyond campus boundaries to bring a wealth of resources to Boston. Our faculty, staff, and students enthusiastically engage in programs that touch people in the South End, the Fenway, Roxbury, Mission Hill, and other neighborhoods. Our neighborhood is home to students, couples, families, and the elderly from a wide variety of ethnic and economic backgrounds. It includes private homes, apartment buildings, and historic sites. There are museums, performing arts centers, parks, stores, and restaurants, all within walking distance of the campus. Students are Northeastern’s ambassadors in the city and the neighborhoods in which they live, study, work, and play. From our work in the schools, to our activities in the community health centers, to our contributions to community development, to our scholarships for local residents, Northeastern strives to maintain positive relationships with our neighbors. As students and residents, it is your job to continue this positive connection to our neighborhoods through each of your interactions. As you explore the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) (where Northeastern students are admitted free to the permanent and special collections), the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Symphony Hall, Horticultural Hall, Copley Square, and the many other splendors of our city, please remember to maintain respect for all our neighbors.
