The college is located in the heart of the Fenway area of Boston.
The Museum of Fine Arts is directly across the street from the home of CCIS: West Village H. Furthermore, within a short walk you may find:
- The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
- Symphony Hall: Boston Symphony and Boston Pops
- Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory of Music
As can see from the large map, West Village H is one block from the Back Bay Fens and the Kelleher Rose Garden. This is part of the Emerald Necklace designed in the late 1800’s by Frederick Law Olmsted. In this extended park, you may do walking, running, or biking for miles. If you go outbound far enough, you will reach the Arnold Arboretum which holds a wonderful collection of trees and plants. To visit the Arboretum directly, you may take the Orange Line from the Ruggles station at Northeastern to its terminus at Forest Hills.
If you make your way on Massachusetts Ave to the Charles River, you find another extended system of paths suitable for walking, running, or biking. These go inbound to the Charles River Dam and outbound as far as Waltham.
Finally, West Village H is a 15 minute walk from Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox. The light towers of Fenway Park may be seen from the upper floors of West Village H.
