Weekend walk at Bentley University – a beautiful campus located only 10 miles away from downtown Boston. This tour started from the upper campus, including academic buildings, freshman dorms, and the bookstore. Across Beaver street via a pedestrian bridge, we entered the lower campus, which features upperclassman housing and the athletic center. Enjoy the tour!

Brief intro of Bentley:
Bentley University is a private university focused on business and located in Waltham, Massachusetts. Founded in 1917 as a school of accounting and finance in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, Bentley moved to Waltham in 1968. Bentley awards Bachelor of Science degrees in 14 business fields and Bachelor of Arts degrees in 11 arts and sciences disciplines, offering 36 minors spanning both arts and science and business disciplines. The graduate school emphasizes the impact of technology on business practice, and offers PhD programs in Business and Accountancy, the Bentley MBA with 16 areas of concentration, an integrated MS+MBA, seven Master of Science degrees, several graduate certificate programs and custom executive education programs.
Bentley’s athletic teams compete in Division II of the NCAA (except for men’s hockey, which competes in Division I) and are known collectively as the Bentley Falcons. They compete in the Northeast-10 Conference.
In 1968, Bentley moved from downtown Boston to Waltham, Massachusetts to accommodate an increasing number of students. The first buildings on the Waltham campus were built between 1965 and 1968. Today, the campus stretches across 163 acres (0.66 km2) of land.
Bentley University’s campus is divided into three parts: Upper Campus, Lower Campus, and North Campus.
Upper Campus contains most of the school’s academic buildings and all of its classrooms. It is located on the North side of Beaver Street. Upper campus also contains all three freshman dorms, a few upperclassman dorms, and the University’s bookstore.
Lower Campus contains more upperclassman housing, the Dana Athletic Center, and the Multi-Purpose Arena. It is connected to upper campus via a bridge over Beaver Street. It is located on the South side of Beaver Street.
North Campus is located a half-mile north of the main entrance to Upper Campus on Forest Street. Transportation to and from North Campus is provided via shuttle bus. North Campus contains only residence hall buildings named: A, B, C and D. Residence halls A and B were opened in 2005 while C and D were opened in 2007, making North Campus the most recent addition to Bentley’s housing facilities. Each building has 3 floors and includes an elevator and 2 stairwells. Originally, North Campus was intended to be graduate student housing, but due to the sharp growth of enrollment it is occupied mostly by undergraduates.
