Great Schools For Students with Children: Massachusetts

The face of a college student is much different than it was 10 or 20 years ago. More singleparents, married students and older students are entering the arena. Universities have made living on campus a possibility with family housing. Here is a list of schools that offer such housing in Massachusetts.

Good post and suggestions for those who have children and want to further their education. I am glad that the college I went to had quality child care. It was nice to have that peace of mind and help.

While they obviously don't have housing, it is worth noting that many of the MA community colleges have on-campus day care centers, and are also great for students with children!
