The campus is situated on the banks of the Merrimack River, a beautiful and culturally diverse area, and the birthplace of America’s industrial revolution. Cotton mills in Lowell, the only city to be awarded national park status by the U.S. National Park Service, opened in 1814 and the city has been a hub of invention and innovation ever since. UML continues that legacy of innovation throughout the campus. Its location 30 miles northwest of Boston offers unsurpassed enrichment of every type, including fine arts, dining, historical sites, and of course sports! Just north of Lowell, the grandeur of New Hampshire’s White Mountains unfolds not far from the storied ski lodges of New Hampshire and Vermont.
