At Watch Factory Lofts, choose between a private apartment or one shared with friends. On weekdays, walk to Brandeis University in 16 minutes, then use the bus stop across the street to explore on weekends. Waltham Station is a 13-minute walk from your front door - and from there, you can reach central Boston in just half an hour. Learn about Boston’s role in the fight for independence with a Freedom Trail tour, or indulge your cultural side with a visit to the Theater District.
After class, stop at the Indian markets on Moody Street to shop for ingredients on your way home. Let yourself in through the door of your furnished apartment at Watch Factory Lofts, then wander through to the kitchen to dump your grocery bags on the granite countertops. Fix yourself a tasty snack, then take your plate through to the living area and kick back on the sofa. Later, stack your plates in the dishwasher, then retreat to your private bedroom to get a head start on your latest assignments.
When you’re done, head out to the garden for a breath of fresh air, or to catch up with your friends at one of the terrace tables. Get your workout with a session on the fitness center treadmills, or hire a kayak and get ready for an adventure on the nearby Charles River. Warm up with a hot bath as soon as you get home, then throw your dirty clothes in the washer dryer and get dressed up to go out for dinner. Spice up a cold night with a taste of Guatemala and El Salvador at Mi Tierra, or with the flavors of Africa at Karibu.
