All freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus while taking classes. Additionally, first year students reside in one of our Living Learning Communities located throughout our 10 residential halls designated for new students. Living Learning Communities offer students the opportunity to live and learn among other students who share similar academic or lifestyle interests.
Students will share a room with one or two other students in traditional, coed residence halls that house between 75 and 500 students. Two of the larger halls each offer a dining hall and common study areas.
Upper class students have the opportunity to live in one of our newer apartment complexes, many of which offer spectacular Boston views. Off-campus housing is also an option for upper class students. If you do elect to live off campus, keep in mind the market for off-campus housing close to campus is very competitive. Allow ample time to find an apartment that best suits your needs. You may also want to consider living farther away from campus, where apartment rental rates are sometimes lower, and commuting to campus via subway or bus.
