What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
The University of Massachusetts-Lowell has a very lovely campus. I visited during a conference at the Tsongas center and had a wonderful time on campus and in the dorms. The campus was beautiful, the food was good, and the supervisors were awesome!
Kaitlyn from Martin, SD
The University of Massachusetts Lowell provides an outstanding atmosphere for students to excel. The community is very welcoming and the teachers are above adequate. The University has a great recreational center that allows students to separate from their studies and enjoy themselves with a sports team or a recreational class.
