Location

Most off-campus students choose to live within a ten minute walk of campus, that is within 1 mile of campus. Here are the average Cambridge rents, just an estimate to give a general understanding, these rates will vary widely depending on a multitude of factors. So the cost will vary from $700 to $3000, depending on the number of rooms and roommates. For off-campus students, it is important to double-check the apartments they are looking at are in Cambridge, as there is a city named Harvard, located 30 miles from Cambridge, and there are Harvard Streets and Massachusetts Avenue in more than 12 cities and towns in Massachusetts. The life in Cambridge is quiet active due to the presence of great numbers of students, with plentiful of bookstores, coffeehouses, restaurants, street performers, historic landmarks, music and clothing stores, museums, theaters, and dance clubs.
