First-year students live in one of our popular Living Learning Communities (LLCs), themed housing environments that connect students of similar academic and personal interests. LLCs are a great way to enrich your academic experience outside the classroom and to form long-lasting bonds with other students who share the same values and enjoy the same activities. After your freshman year, you are guaranteed housing on campus. As an upperclassman, you can choose from one of our newer apartment complexes, many of which offer spectacular Boston views. Wherever you live on our campus, you’ll feel a part of both the Northeastern and Boston communities.
All freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus while taking classes. Most new students will share a room with one or two other students in traditional, coed residence halls that house between 75 and 700 students. Two of the larger halls each offer a dining hall and common study areas. The university is set to open a brand new 17-story residence hall in 2015.
The majority of upperclass students are housed in apartment-style residences at 780 Columbus, Loftman Hall, Davenport Commons, and West Village G and H. There are economy, standard, and enhanced rooms to accommodate students of all financial circumstances.
Students who do not live in university housing are considered off-campus students. Off-Campus Services offers information, resources, and materials regarding off-campus student living.
