Boston Campus Life

Welcome commuter students! MCPHS is pleased to offer valuable resources that will help you make the most of each day. We appreciate that you spend a lot of time on campus, which is why we offer a range of amenities to make you feel at home – like common areas, study halls, eateries, and the library.

Many of you get to and from campus via bike, car, or train. Fortunately, all MCPHS students have access to the MBTA Pass Program, which offers discounted semester passes for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. For students who only need to use the local bus routes, the Green Line and Subway lines, but not any of the commuter rail stops, we recommend the LinkPass instead of the Zone 1A pass.

It may also be helpful to lease a locker on campus. Lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis via registration, and are located in the following buildings: Fennell, White, and Griffin.

We encourage our commuter students to get involved with on-campus activities. Stay close to the action by joining student clubs, taking on leadership positions, and volunteering.
