Overview

From The School

The wooded, 131-acre Milton campus is one of the most attractive small college campuses in New England. Right on campus, you'll have at your fingertips the resources to help you excel academically, socially, and physically and find endless sources of entertainment, action, and challenge.

Unlike other isolated suburban or rural campuses, Curry is just a stone's throw away from Boston, one of the most exciting cities in the world. As a result, Curry can offer its students an exceptional advantage through access to Boston's cultural and educational institutions. The opportunity 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. The Milton campus is a beautiful retreat in the woods, with the excitement of the City waiting right outside.

Back on campus, students also enjoy the comfort Curry's tight-knit, friendly community and the security services provided by the Department of Public Safety, which administers a highly professional system for the enforcement of rules and regulations designed to promote the general safety and security of persons and properties on the campus.

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 to learn about our campus facilities and to consider visiting Curry in person. We hope to see you on campus soon!
