Suffolk University Madrid Campus (or SUMC) is a satellite campus of Suffolk University located in Madrid, Spain. This campus offers degree programs to new students, study abroad programs to Boston campus students and transfer programs at affiliated universities (such as Chapman University.


Sargent Hall

The main campus in downtown Boston is situated on well-known Beacon Hill, adjacent to the Massachusetts State House and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

In addition to its main campus in Boston, there are satellite campuses in Madrid, Spain, and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. In 2011, Suffolk University closed their second international campus in Dakar, Senegal (Suffolk University Dakar Campus)[3] due to more interest from Senegalese students to begin their studies in Boston.


Suffolk employs nearly 800 full-time and adjunct faculty members, who instruct approximately 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students.[4]

The Sawyer Business School (previously the Sawyer School of Management) focuses on global business education.[5] It offers undergraduate and graduate degrees. Joint degrees are also offered. About 3,000 students are currently enrolled in all programs. The Saturday-only Executive MBA Program incorporates four off-site one-week seminars and week-long global trips to London and China. The Global MBA is a specialized MBA in international business with an intensive concentration in either finance or marketing. The full-time program includes a 3-month internship outside the student's home country. Summer 2010 Global MBA internships are in 10 countries. Part-time Global MBAs complete either a global experiential research project at their place of business or a 3-month consulting project that includes an intensive 2 week residency outside the US.[6]

The Suffolk College of Arts and Sciences has seventeen academics departments which offer more than seventy undergraduate and graduate programs.[7] [8]

Suffolk University Law School, founded in 1906, offers a standard Juris Doctor program and advanced L.L.M. program. 43% of applicants were admitted to the J.D. program in 2005.[9]

The university is also home to the Beacon Hill Institute, a "free-market think-tank,"[10] the Centers for Crime & Justice Policy Research, Restorative Justice, and Women's Health and Human Right, the Poetry Center Political Research Centers, the R.S. Friedman Field Station, and the Sagan Energy Research Laboratory.[11]

Student Life[edit]

Thirteen athletic teams from Suffolk compete in the NCAA Division III.[12]

Up until 1995, Suffolk was a commuter-only school. Today, there are four residence halls, housing about 90% of freshman, and a total of 25% of the entire undergraduate population. The Residence Halls are:

  • 150 Tremont
  • Miller Hall
  • 10 West
  • Modern Theatre Hall

The residence hall at 150 Tremont Street was the first built by the university and currently houses Freshman in singles, doubles, quads, and suites, with communial bathrooms. Nathan R. Miller Residence Hall (located at 10 Somerset St.) was opened in 2005 and houses 15 floors of freshman, and 2 floors of sophomores in singles, doubles and quads, with bathrooms shared between every two rooms. 10 West/10 West Expansion is the newest residence hall and has housing for freshman and sophomores in singles, doubles and a variety of apartment style suites.

Both Miller Hall and 150 Tremont have cafeterias. Students living at 10 West can choose to at either cafeteria. Suffolk University occasionally leases additional properties (such as the Hyatt & Holiday Inn Beacon Hill). If leased, those locations house freshman students.

The Modern Theatre Resident Hall opened in the fall of 2010. It is also considered an extension to the 10 West Resident Hall. It is built over the new Modern Theatre, at Suffolk University.
