Somerville was founded to include the excluded.
It was created for women when universities refused them entry, and for people of diverse beliefs when conformity was essential if you wanted to succeed.
Today, you’ll find a co-educational community that shares a culture of progressive thinking, academic excellence, and fun. We are a college that doesn’t follow the pack, where what you think and do will always matter more than where you came from.
