"Great student area!"

The area around Tufts University is, as one might expect, heavily oriented toward students and university life. Anything you might save on rent because it might be a bit of a walk to the T is cancelled out because apartments are popular in the area. The area used to be pretty bad but the need for student housing has improved it dramatically.

The good news is that you can walk almost anywhere for things you need. Ethnic restaurants, chain stores and shops are all easily found on the Somerville side of Tufts. The campus and the immediate area become a little university world but it doesn't take long to discover that a T ride away is loads of stuff. Harvard Square is one stop!
