The Pioneer Valley also presents a wide assortment of affordable, convenient housing options for students. Rental opportunities range from apartment complexes in downtown Springfield; Victorian homes in the city’s residential neighborhoods; garden apartments in adjoining suburbs; small houses in rural areas; and apartments in Northampton, the area’s eclectic and hip college town. Rentals in the Springfield area generally range from $500 to $900 per month.
An Ideal Central Location
Springfield’s location at the intersection of Interstate 91 and Interstate 90 (the Massachusetts Turnpike) makes it an excellent starting point for job prospecting in New York City, Boston, Hartford, Albany, or Providence or for recreational trips to the Berkshires, Cape Cod, or Vermont. The city is served by Amtrak, Bradley International Airport, and frequent bus service.
The School’s location places students in the midst of an active court system and legal community. State and federal courthouses; offices of the Attorney General, District Attorney, and Public Defender; and many small and medium-sized law firms in the Springfield/Hartford region represent opportunities for externships and full- and part-time employment. Many graduates are also employed at major corporations and nonprofits. MassMutual Financial Group is headquartered in the region, as are Baystate Medical Center, Smith & Wesson, and Hasbro. Major northern Connecticut employers include LEGO, United Technologies, Pratt & Whitney, Travelers, The Hartford Financial Services Group, Ind., and other insurance carriers located in Hartford, “the insurance capital of the world.”
