Community Life

Enjoy world-class arts and culture events, high-level lifelong learning opportunities, and the friendship of fascinating neighbors.

“Community” refers to two things: the group of people you live, work, play, and share experiences with; and it’s the physical location you inhabit. In both senses of the word, community life at NewBridge on the Charles on the Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Campus is hard to beat.

Life here is about so much more than the beautiful campus, it is about the people and the activities. A full schedule of cultural, political, social, and wellness programming gives you the opportunity to tap into all your interests, existing or new at NewBridge.

In addition to the daily calendar of programming, there are outings and scheduled trips to a variety of performance arts venues and structured classes available.

The daily schedule is further enhanced by a full list of active groups and committees where our residents truly shape the daily life on campus. When you make NewBridge your home, you bring all your interests and passions and enrich the community by contributing in whatever way you choose.

Many NewBridge residents have become involved in local politics and give back in a number of community outreach and charitable endeavors.
