Visiting Rivier

Rivier's 68-acre campus is centrally located in the heart of New England, an easy drive to beaches, mountains, and major metropolitan areas like Boston, Hartford, and Portland.

There's a reason Nashua has been voted the "Best Place to Live in America" twice by Money magazine. New Hampshire's "Gate City" offers a mix of service and high-tech companies, so students have plenty of choices for internships and employment. Nashua has a lively downtown with sidewalk cafes, shopping, and off-campus entertainment. Biking and hiking trails, minor league baseball games, cultural events, and other recreational options mean there's always something to do.
