Off-Campus Search Guide

Boston as a whole is made up of over 20 neighborhoods, each with its own distinct characteristics and features, and that number doesn’t even include the many cities that border Boston including Brookline, Newton, Cambridge, Somerville, Malden, and Medford. Before beginning your housing search, it can be helpful to learn more about the Boston metropolitan area. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, check out the City of Boston Visitor Guide and City of Cambridge Tourism Office to learn a little more about these two cities.
