From the Institution

UMass Lowell today ranks as the best public university in Massachusetts-a testament to our supportive, people-first environment, our long tradition of experiential learning and our commitment to seeing every student make the most of their education. We're proud to score top marks for campus diversity, environmental sustainability, student outcomes, graduate earning power and lifetime return on investment. Few and far between are the top-tier research universities that offer our combination of excellence and affordability, yet we never stop working for an even stronger future. Every year, our 17,000+ students learn more, earn more and ultimately go on to live better as UML grads. It's an experience that begins with tireless faculty and staff upholding deep commitments to inclusivity, wellbeing and academic success. It's punctuated by The UML Guarantee, which provides the opportunity for every first-time, first-year student to pursue at least one career-connected experience as an undergrad, earning pay, credits, or both, along the way. And it's all happening in the warm and historic city of Lowell, in the heart of New England. As one of the safest large cities around, Lowell consistently punches above its weight for livability, walkability, workability and cultural variety. Whether you know what you want out of college or you're just wrapping your head around the idea, UMass Lowell has something for everyone. Division I sports. State-of-the-art labs and makerspaces. Art, music, food and festivals. Business incubators and seed funding. Access to the best of metro Boston's innovators and employers. Hundreds of student organizations. The great outdoors and the rumbling bustle of cobblestone streets, side by side. Around every corner is an opportunity and, more than likely, an alum who's eager to help you seize it.
