In between classes, wander down the road from your student housing to MIT’s iconic campus. Discover the university’s contribution to the worlds of science and technology at the MIT Museum, before stopping in at award-winning Toscanini’s Ice Cream for a scoop of turkish mocha ice cream. Later, explore the works of local artists at exciting arts space Gallery 263, then spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing by Magazine Beach’s riverfront public pool. In the evening, get tickets to a politically-charged play at Central Square Theater, or catch your favorite band at Paradise Rock Club.

Whether you choose a one, two or three-bedroom apartment, getting to classes from Chroma is easy. Walk 10 minutes to MIT and Boston University, or hop on the subway for the 20-minute ride to Harvard University. If you’ve got time before class, head to Café Luna for Belgian waffles and gourmet omelets. On weekends, walk 15 minutes to Central subway station, or use the nearby bus stops to get around town. For complete independence, make the most of the property’s garage parking and courtesy bikes.

In the afternoon, come home to bright, airy windows and wood-style flooring. Dump your bag in your private room, before using the kitchen’s stainless steel appliances to fix a quick snack. Later, recharge your batteries with a nap on the living room’s comfy couch, or wander out to the courtyard to catch up with your friends in the sunshine. With a state-of-the-art Fit Zone on site, keeping in shape is amazingly convenient, while your bathroom tub provides a luxurious way to unwind post-workout.

Put a load on to wash in the apartment laundry room, then head to the entertainment lounge to use the free Wi-Fi or to catch up  on your favorite TV series in front of the fireplace. Later, eat dinner around the dining table with your friends, or fire up the rooftop grills for a lazy summer evening overlooking spectacular views of the city. If you’d rather eat out, try Coast Café for soul food staples like fried chicken and mac ‘n’ cheese, or Veggie Galaxy for amazing vegetarian burgers, salads and sandwiches.
