Law Application Process
As full-time students enrolled in a law program at Northeastern, you can apply to live in campus housing. Because space is limited, housing is not guaranteed.
Northeastern does not have accommodations for married couples, spousal equivalents, or dependent children. You can obtain information about alternative housing from Off Campus Student 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.
Once you have completed your application, you should return it to Housing & Residential Life. Our contact information is listed below.
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 non-refundable Housing Deposits for the terms they requested.
Students who receive a wait list number will also be notified by mail at this time about their position on this list and will be provided with information about the process and next steps, as well as off-campus housing alternatives.
Student Rights and Responsibilities
All students living in space 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.
