Law Application Process

Housing Eligibility

Housing is available for full-time students enrolled in a law program at Northeastern. Space is limited, therefore housing is not guaranteed.

Northeastern does not have accommodations for the College of Professional Studies - CPS, married couples, spousal equivalents, or dependent children. You can obtain information about alternative housing from Off-Campus Housing Services.

Law Students New to On-Campus Housing

  • Step I: Complete the housing application

Law Students who would like to apply for university housing must submit a housing application by May 30, 2014.  Please indicate on the application all the terms for which you wish to apply.  You are also required to sign the 2014-2015 Residence Hall and Dining License Agreement at the time you apply for housing.

Step II: Housing Assignment Process

After the application deadline, housing applications will be randomly selected through a computer-generated program.  Students will either receive an offer for housing or be placed on a wait list for housing. 

All students who applied will be notified of their application status during the middle of June.

Students who receive an offer for housing will be required to submit a $200 non-refundable housing deposit for each of the terms requested.

Students who receive a wait list number will be provided with additional information about the process and next steps, as well as off-campus housing alternatives.

Student Rights and Responsibilities

All students living in spaces leased by Northeastern are bound to uphold the “Code of Conduct” as detailed in the University’s Student Handbook, as well as, the terms and conditions detailed in both the Guide to Residence Hall Living and the Residence Hall and Dining License Agreement.  Students whose behavior is not in accordance with these standards will be subject to disciplinary action.

At the time you receive your assignment letter, you will be provided with details of your move-in date and time.
