Colleges of the Fenway

One of the major advantages to students within the Colleges of the Fenway is the ability to cross-register between institutions. Cross registration provides full-time undergraduates of the Colleges of the Fenway with the opportunity to take two courses per semester at any of the five institutions—MCPHS University, Simmons University, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Emmanuel College and Massachusetts College of Art and Design—and social capacities, and introduces them to faculty, research, colleagues and curricula they would not otherwise have experienced. On average, 300 students have cross-registered each semester since the consortium's inception.

Another benefit is that the institutions within the Colleges of the Fenway are members of three library consortia in Boston. Within the Colleges of the Fenway, students may check out books directly at the libraries of 15 area colleges. They may also request the book though the Inter-Library Loan system. Together, these 15 libraries provide for an extended amount of resources compared to the single library of any one of the individual COF institutions.

The COF's Global Education Opportunities Center offers member colleges a shared resource for preparing students with the learning and life experiences necessary to function effectively in a global environment. The Center is dedicated to building awareness of, support for, access to and participation in COF-sponsored cross-cultural education abroad as well as in the U.S.
