Central Massachusetts: A place you’ll feel at home.
Nichols College is located on more than 200 acres of rolling hills in Dudley, Mass., a small Central Massachusetts community just 20 minutes south of Worcester. We are within an hour’s drive of Boston, Springfield, Hartford, and Providence.
The greater Worcester area, home to 13 colleges and universities, is a vibrant and creative region in the midst of an exciting revitalization. And the country is taking notice: historic Worcester has been named among the top 10 best small cities to live in by Forbes magazine.
Whether it’s catching a hot concert at the DCU Center, sampling restaurants on Shrewsbury Street, exploring the region’s many cultural offerings, or catching a game with the Worcester Tornadoes (Can-Am League baseball), Worcester Sharks (American Hockey League) or New England Surge (Continental Indoor Football League), Worcester is a true college town with plenty to offer.
