Getting to Boston

Whether you're coming from down the street, across the country, or around the world, Boston is a uniquely welcoming destination.

The best pro tip we can offer: leave the car at home if you can. When you combine Boston's centrally located airport and train stations with its plentiful public transit options and compact, walkable neighborhoods, you'll have ready access to everything the city has to offer without relying on your own wheels.

By Air

Logan International Airport sits just across Boston Harbor from Suffolk's downtown campus, a 10-minute subway ride away. A great (and sometimes less expensive) alternative: Providence, Rhode Island's T.F. Green International Airport, about 90 minutes away by train or bus.

By Rail

Suffolk sits directly between—and within walking distance of—Boston's North Station and South Station, hubs for national Amtrak and major bus companies. Even closer are stops for all four of Boston's MBTA subway lines: Green, Red, Orange, and Blue. 

By Car

If you do choose to drive to Suffolk, the University is surrounded by plentiful public parking options. Find a list of nearby garages and lots here.

Once You're Here

After you've seen everything Suffolk has to offer, it's easy to see a little of what the city offers too. (As a student, you'll see much more!) There's plenty to see and do in downtown Boston at any time of year, on any budget. Start here to get some ideas.
