To schedule a personal tour of Lasell Village, please call (617) 663-7044.

Our active, independent senior living community is located in Newton, Massachusetts, just 11 miles from downtown Boston, and we share a 13-acre campus with Lasell University.

Because we’re a university-based retirement community, we’re one of the most unique senior living options in the country. At Lasell Village, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in courses and education events, and you can also enroll in courses at Lasell University.

Founded in 2002, our retirement community in Newton is patterned after a classic New England village, with weather-protected walkways throughout. Lasell Village includes 182 residences (1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units), and we’re committed to lifelong learning and wellness.

In addition to being close to Boston, Newton is also near these communities:

  • Brookline
  • Wellesley
  • Needham
  • Wayland
  • Weston
  • Watertown
  • Belmont

The rich, “college-town” character of Newton is enlivening for people of all ages and provides many cultural, educational, and intergenerational opportunities.

Newton has a population of approximately 88,000 residents, and is about 18 square miles in size. There is no single “Main Street” or downtown. Instead, Newton is made up of thirteen distinctive villages, and about 20% of the land in Newton is open space.

Newton has been ranked #1 as the best place to live in Massachusetts, and #12 as the best place to live in the U.S. Just as a fun fact, the Fig Newton cookie was named after Newton, Massachusetts.

We certainly love Newton, and we know that you will, too!

“The connection with Lasell University has made me feel like a student again—it’s something I never thought I would experience while living in a retirement community!”
