Living on Campus

Assumption is a beautiful and comfortable place to live—with everything you need just steps from your door.

A campus where beauty meets opportunity

Nearly 90 percent of Assumption students choose to live on campus all four years—and you likely will, too. Why? Because living at Assumption means experiencing the best of two worlds: the chance to live on a beautiful, traditional, lively New England college campus—while enjoying easy access to all that the dynamic city of Worcester has to offer.

  • Assumption’s gorgeous campus is located in a rural, residential neighborhood of Worcester, MA. You’ll experience the seasons on our wooded 185-acre campus—complete with a tranquil duck pond and plenty of space for recreation, relaxation, and reflection.
  • The vibrant city of Worcester, MA—New England’s second-largest city—is home to 35,000 college students, and the city fully caters to their needs. You’ll have endless opportunities to learn, grow, and have fun in Worcester. You’ll benefit from life-changing internships, world-class resources for recreation, and fabulous dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

A small-town feel within a major city

Cheer on your favorite Greyhound basketball players in the Laska Gymnasium. Catch an improv comedy show in Charlie’s. Study in the Emmanuel d’Alzon Library. Swim laps in the Plourde Recreation Center’s six-lane pool. Grab coffee with friends at the Tsotsis Café.

Assumption may be located in a major city, but its campus feels like a small, bustling New England town. We have our own sports teams, music and theater groups, lecture series, dining establishments, television station, newspaper, post office, well-equipped fitness center, well-stocked library, and so much more. Ours is a community of inspiring people, great friends, and all the amenities and activities you need to lead a full, balanced, healthy life—mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
