Maps and directions

Brandeis is nine miles west of Boston, the capital of Massachusetts and New England’s largest city. We’re easy to get to: More than 40 airlines fly into Logan International Airport, the campus is within a half-day’s drive of every major city in the Northeast, and Boston is a hub for Amtrak and several major bus lines.

Places to stay

Many lodging options are available in Waltham or just a short drive away, including extended-stay hotels, Airbnb rentals and boutique hotels. For even more choices, you can try Boston, which is easily accessible via mass transit or car.

Places to eat

Waltham is foodie heaven. Find Italian, American, Greek, Indian, Mexican, seafood, kosher and vegan menus downtown and on Moody Street.

Visiting Boston

One of the nation’s oldest and most historic cities, Boston is also young and contemporary. You can’t miss the vibrant impact of the 250,000 college students who live in Greater Boston. Live music, great theater, world famous museums, fabulous food, championship sports teams, breathtaking architecture and cityscapes make Boston a global destination. Brandeis’ host city of Waltham, a suburb of 60,000, is a short car or train ride from Boston. And a Brandeis bus shuttle runs to Beantown 30 times a week.
