On-Campus Housing

Northeastern University's Housing & Residential Life system includes student housing that is either owned or leased by the University.

FIRST YEAR STUDENTS

All first year students are required to live on campus. The First Year Experience (FYE) program has been developed to help Northeastern University’s first year students transition into this new and exciting chapter of their lives - college life. Residential Life is dedicated to working with Northeastern students to help them build strong community living environments that support personal development and academic success. These environments provide opportunities to learn outside of the classroom through the Living Learning Community program.

The foundation for the FYE program is held by four pillars: Personal Development, Academic Success, Experiential Learning and Community Development. These pillars are the guiding principles of the programs and resources specific to the needs of first year students. The goal is to help students navigate the University, familiarize them in their first year living away from home, and with life in a new environment.

Second Year Students

All second year students are required to live on campus. The Residential Life Department knows that the second year of college can be a challenging one. Second year students are no longer new to the university, they are experienced students with a good foundation and understanding of the expectations of college life at Northeastern University. The Residential Life Department staff is dedicated to helping second year students continue to navigate the university, provide opportunities for continued academic success and career exploration.

As students move from their first year in college to their second, there are many transitions and expectations that are required of them. It is our mission to continue to provide resources and support to build on success throughout their second year.

Northeastern University's Second Year Experience (SYE) Program will provide students with an enhanced personal vision through academic and co-curricular exploration, supplementing their experience at Northeastern and beyond. The SYE Program will build on the foundation of the First Year Experience and Living Learning Communities Programs through continued support and meaningful community interaction.

Every second year resident will be exposed to programs and resources that match the program pillars of Academic Success, Experiential Learning, Career Exploration and Interdependent Living.
