Great Schools For Students with Children: Massachusetts

Updated on September 19, 2012

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.

      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!

      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.
