The Boston Campus is located just a short walk from the MBTA Arlington Street Station on the Green Line. Exit the Arlington Street Station to the left. At the top of the stairs, make a hard right onto Arlington Street. When you reach Beacon Street, cross the street, and turn left. Fisher College is located at 118 Beacon Street.
Commuting students are an integral part of Fisher College's student life. All events, organizations, and clubs are open to commuters. The Division of Student Life strongly encourages these students to actively participate in College activities and to make good use of all the services provided (e.g. counseling, health services, etc.). To make their transition easier, the College offers the following services:
A Commuter Liaison is available to provide support to commuter students and to help them navigate College life. The Commuter Liaison advises the Commuter Student Association, which facilitates connections between commuters and gives commuter students a forum through which to express their concerns. Commuter luncheons also take place once a month. You may reach the Commuter Liaison at 617-670-4421, or stop by the Dean of Students' Office on the Mall.
Fisher College is easily accessible by public transportation. We are located near the Arlington Street T-stop. Subway, bus, and commuter rail discount passes are available from the Office of Housing and Residential Life.
Boston, Massachusetts and the Freedom Trail offers an informal tour of several famous historical sites. Boston is a major center for the arts, with internationally regarded museums, a rich theatre tradition, and a busy concert schedule featuring A-list entertainers. A half a million people crowd the Esplanade every July 4th for the Boston Pops concert and Fireworks Spectacular.
Boston is a dynamic sports hub as well, with teams representing all four major sports, not to mention the world-famous Boston Marathon and the annual Head of the Charles Regatta. Unique cafes and eateries, shopping for things large and small and much more is only a few steps or an MBTA subway ride away!
Residential LifeApproximately 300 students make their homes in one of the College's four residence halls. Located just around the corner from the Public Gardens and Boston Common, students reside in elegant, 1900's "brownstone" townhouses with all the comforts of home. The turn of the century residence halls have modern amenities such as security systems, common areas with full-size refrigerators and microwaves, and TV/Lounge rooms with both cable TV and DVD players making the halls a comfortable place to study, relax, or just hang out with friends. While each living area is unique, each fosters an environment that is conducive to learning.
