A chain of European-style coffee places continues to expand into the Boston area, with a shop on the way that should be popular with college students.

According to a couple of sources, Caffe Nero is planning to open on Commonwealth Avenue over by Boston University and just east of Packard's Corner, with a message from the chain saying that an opening date has not been given as of yet, though they will let us know when they do have one. Once the new location opens, it will join a number of other outlets in the local area, including Downtown Crossing, the South End, Fort Point, Longwood, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, Cambridge's Central Square, Andover, and Wellesley, along with an upcoming shop in Somerville's Assembly Row.

Caffe Nero is a London-based chain of coffeehouses that opened its first Boston-area location in the spring of 2014.

The address for the upcoming Caffe Nero by Boston University is 1047 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215.The website for the chain can be found at
