Housing & Residential Life

All students who enter as freshmen are guaranteed housing on campus during semesters they are in class. 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 on our campus, you’ll feel a part of both the Northeastern and Boston communities.

First-year students 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 freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus while taking classes. 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.
