How Suffolk University is responding
to the coronavirus outbreak
At Suffolk University we are driven by the power of education, inclusion, and engagement to change lives and positively impact communities. Committed to excellence, we provide students with experiential and transformational learning opportunities that begin in the center of Boston, reach across the globe, and lead to extraordinary outcomes for our graduates.
Suffolk University just purchased the historic Ames building at One Court Street in downtown Boston for planned use after permitting as our newest residence hall.
It is important to the University to provide our students with two years of guaranteed housing on our core downtown campus, and we know that it's important to you, your students and their families as well. The support that students receive in their first two years is critical to their educational success; we are committed to ensuring that we provide a residential environment where students will thrive, in addition to providing outstanding resources for students who choose to live at home.
One Court Street is found steps away from every MBTA subway line, City Hall Plaza, the State House, the Financial District, the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, and so much more, all while being within a five-minute walk of Suffolk’s academic buildings. Our anticipated use of One Court Street will make it our fifth residence hall in downtown Boston.
We’d like a holistic view of the academic and intellectual accomplishments of our applicants, and we want to know what makes them unique. Starting with students applying to Suffolk University for Fall 2021, our new test-optional policy allows them to make the best decision for them to show our admission committee why enrollment at Suffolk University would provide a great academic and personal fit!
