Housing & Residential Life

As a Northeastern student, you’ll have access to a variety of university housing. As an upperclass student, you can choose from one of our newer apartment complexes, many of which offer spectacular views of Boston. Wherever you live, you’ll feel a part of both the Northeastern and Boston communities.

First-year students beginning in the fall term live in one of our popular Living Learning Communities (LLCs)—themed housing environments that connect students of similar academic and personal interests. LLCs are a great way to enrich your academic experience outside of the classroom, and to form long-lasting bonds with other students who share the same values and enjoy the same activities.

Residence Halls

All first- and second-year students are required to live in university housing. Most new students will share a room with one or two other students in traditional, co-ed residence halls that house between 75 and 700 students. Two of the larger halls each offer a dining hall and common study areas.


Apartment Complexes

The majority of upperclass students are housed in apartment-style residences at 780 Columbus, Loftman Hall, Davenport Commons, and West Village G and H. There are economy, standard, and enhanced rooms to accommodate students of all financial circumstances.


Off-Campus Services

Students who do not live in university housing are considered off-campus students. Off-Campus Services offers information, resources, and materials regarding off-campus student living.
