20 Somerset: architect's rendering


The latest chapter in Suffolk University’s success story will be written within the walls of our new landmark campus building at 20 Somerset.

Students will experience an active learning environment with multiple collaborative seating classrooms designed to promote discussion and interaction. Projection systems and round tables with electrical, data, and video projection connections will facilitate group work and presentations. The building will also house production and editing facilities for Communication & Journalism.

A cafeteria and multiple lounges will offer students spaces to study or relax. Outside, adjacent to 20 Somerset, students and neighbors can enjoy the renovated Roemer Plaza.

20 Somerset faces the Sawyer Building at 8 Ashburton Place, further cementing Suffolk’s place as a key player in downtown Boston.
