The Porter Campus is set in bustling Porter Square, an urban hub at the intersection of two major streets, subway, commuter rail and bus lines.
Our Porter campus is steps away from the Porter Square MBTA Station (Red Line and Commuter Rail). It's the site of University Hall—an art deco building originally constructed for Sears Roebuck—and the Lunder Arts Center which opened in 2015.
From left to right: University Hall and Lunder Arts Center. The MoriartyLibrary is housed in the restored, and relocated, North Prospect Church.
University Hall (U-Hall) contains our Graduate School of Education, classroom and studio spaces, faculty offices, science labs, bookstore, restaurants, a 175-seat amphitheatre for events and lectures, and art gallery.
