Living In Boston

Back Bay Panorama

For decades, people from all over the world have come to Boston to study, live and work. A vibrant and culturally-rich city with more than 100 colleges and universities, Boston is one of the world's most popular destinations for international students.

Bunker Hill Community College provides a friendly, welcoming environment for its international student population, offering plenty of opportunities to make new friends and pursue diverse interests, both on and off campus. We are located a short distance from such cultural landmarks as Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market and the renowned Freedom Trail, which winds through many of the city's significant historical neighborhoods. The campus is easily accessible to the Boston Common, Public Garden and the Charles River, which serve as settings for outdoor and sporting activities.

Those who prefer to enjoy their sports as spectators will appreciate the easy access to Fenway Park and the T.D. Banknorth Garden, where fans cheer on the Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins from the comfort of the sidelines.

Artistic and cultural activities abound. The Back Bay, which is home to numerous shopping centers, art galleries, restaurants and the famous boutiques of Newbury Street, lies in the heart of the city, in close proximity to Symphony Hall, the Boston Center of the Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Theater District.

Outside the city, many students choose to explore the beautiful beaches of Cape Cod, the mountains and ski areas of Vermont and New Hampshire or the rocky coast of Maine, all of which are in driving distance of our campus.

For a fun and exciting educational, cultural and social college experience, Boston is the ideal city for the international student to call "home."
