The wooded, 131-acre Milton campus is one of the most attractive small college campuses in New England. Unlike other isolated suburban or rural campuses, Curry College is just seven miles from downtown Boston, one of the most exciting cities in the world. The College's location offers students an exceptional advantage, and opportunities for internships and entertainment in this New England capital is a significant part of the Curry experience.
Curry's location has yet another advantage: it is less than two miles from the scenic Blue Hills, a natural reservation which offers skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and a range of resources for environmental education and recreation.
Back on campus, students also enjoy the comfort of Curry's tight-knit, friendly community and the security services provided by the Department of Public Safety. Students have a wealth of resources on campus to help them excel academically, socially, and physically and find endless sources of entertainment, action, and challenge.
Curry College is home to a caring and committed community where visitors are always welcome. We invite you to visit our interactive campus map online
