From Vox on Two, you can cycle to Tufts University and Harvard University in just 20 minutes. Choose a private apartment or a shared one, then decide whether you want to have it pre-furnished. In the morning, wake up in time for a workout in the fitness center before class, then throw your clothes in the washer dryer and sit down to eat at the breakfast bar. On weekends, use the bike share program to get around locally, walk 15 minutes to your nearest MBTA station or make the most of the on-site Zip Car rental.
When you’re not exploring Waltham or venturing into central Boston, come home to your heated apartment. Pop a snack in the microwave, then curl up with a good book on the living area couch. Later, head to the resident’s lounge to catch up with your friends by the fireplace, or to Skype your family using the free Wi-Fi. In summer, the landscaped courtyard is the place to be, whether you’re practising your swing on the putting green, sprawling on the grass for an alfresco study session, or swimming a few lengths of the seasonal pool.
In the evening, fire up the outdoor grills, or opt for dinner in the kitchen instead. Stack the plates in the dishwasher, then plan a cozy evening of playing billiards in the game room and watching movies in the the on-site theater. If you’re keen for a change of scene, head to your spacious bathroom to get ready for a night out, then catch a ride to Davis Square for an independent film screening at historic Somerville Theatre.
