Your new home is a 12-minute drive from Tufts University and a 20-minute drive from Harvard University, and you can store your car in 898 Massachusetts Avenue’s on-site parking at the end of the day. If you don’t have a car, you can cycle to Harvard in 25 minutes on the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway, or take the bus along Massachusetts Avenue and get there in 30 minutes. When you’re in the mood for a trip to Boston, catch the T from Alewife and you’ll be there in 25 minutes.
Stop off at the nearby Stop & Shop on the way home from college, and pick up everything you need to make dinner. You won’t have to carry your bags very far because your building has full elevator access. There’s lots of room in your fully fitted kitchen to store all your groceries, along with all the appliances you need to cook up a storm.
If you’re sharing a two-bedroom apartment with a roommate, relax together in the living area after you’ve eaten and chat about your day. If you have your own one-bed apartment or studio, make the most of the peace and quiet and spend some time catching up on your college work, or retreat to the bathroom and relieve your study stress with a relaxing soak in the tub. When you don’t feel like cooking, meet friends for dinner and drinks at Common Ground Bar & Grill instead.
There are laundry facilities in your building, and heat and hot water are included in your rent. If you need advice or repairs, the friendly maintenance team is available 24/7.
