What to Bring

Northeastern University, like most other colleges and universities, provides each intern with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, and window shade. This is true whether you are living in a standard single, standard double, enhanced single, or enhanced housing accommodation. Some double rooms have only one closet to share with your roommate.

While the summer season is shorter than a traditional semester, we offer suggestions of what you may wish to bring to campus for your summer stay with us.
