Transfer Housing Options

In addition to owning many residence halls, Northeastern leases space for its students in a number of privately held properties that are convenient to campus, primarily on Hemenway Street, Huntington Avenue, Columbus Avenue or St. Stephen Street.


Our leased-properties program is a significant part of our residential community. The full-time liaison between your building and the Department of Housing & Residential Life is the Leased Properties Residence Director (RD). This person's principal role is to assist in the smooth coordination of services to students living in these properties.
