NU campus

The campus of NU is located in Boston. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. Not only locals study at NU, but also students from other countries. The variety of cultures represented broadens the horizons of students and fills student life with all sorts of activities, the purpose of which is cultural exchange.
