The Greater Springfield region combines the best of a vibrant city on the move with the best of charming New England towns that have a more rural feel. We think that makes living and working here a smart decision.
The Knowledge Corridor, in the region of Springfield and Hartford, CT, is named for the area’s second-largest concentration of colleges and universities in the country. These institutions attract and educate a talented and diverse workforce.
