Join a buzzing student community in Fenway/Kenmore, near a famous baseball stadium, renowned museums and ample green spaces
Living so close to Boston’s historic ballpark, you’ll almost hear the crack of the bat on game days. Head into the heart of your new neighborhood for the bright lights of Fenway Park, and cheer for the famous Red Sox team as they score home runs. Even if you can’t score tickets, you’ll still find tons to do in the area near Lansdowne Street. Walk up and down this buzzing thoroughfare when night falls to check out what’s on tap, or head to sports bars like Game On! for ping pong or Boston Beer Works to catch the game on the big screen.
Baseball fans may rule the streets when the Red Sox are in town, but the area around Kenmore Square offers much more than sports. Just outside your door you can explore internationally acclaimed institutions like the Museum of Fine Arts. After a browse through ancient paintings and sculptures, head to the many affordable eateries that attract students of all types. Try the creative dumplings at Mei Mei restaurant or share a table with other diners inside Sweet Cheeks Q barbecue joint.
On weekends you can unwind in Back Bay Fens, where you can meander through the rose garden or just a toss a Frisbee over the lawn with your friends. Curl up with a book and a latte at cafés like Pavement Coffee afterwards, then stroll back to your apartment. You’ll find countless schools within walking distance, including Boston University, Berklee College of Music and Northeastern University.
