What to expect from our residence halls
Beds will be made upon arrival. Additionally, participants will have bath towels, hand towels, and a face cloth. Bathrooms will have basic toiletries, such as conditioning shampoo and soap. Northeastern’s state-of-the-art residence halls offer air conditioning, laundry facilities, secure access control and 24-hour proctored front desks as well as complimentary Wi-Fi internet. All bedrooms have windows with standard mini-blinds.
Because of the short term nature of most group stays, the following services are not standard offerings: daily room cleaning, mail/package delivery, landline phone service.

Alcohol & Drugs
In Massachusetts, an individual must be 21 years of age to possess and consume alcohol. The University expects that all of its program participants abide by this law and abide by University regulations concerning alcohol and drug use.
Possession and consumption of alcohol is limited to individuals of legal age in a private apartment or bedroom within a residence hall. All occupants of a private bedroom or apartment where alcohol is being consumed must be of legal age. Consumption of alcohol is prohibited in all residence hall common areas.
Courtesy hours are in effect 24 hours a day. Stereos, radios, televisions, musical instruments, and all conversations must be kept to levels that will not interfere with other participants’ ability to function or sleep. Participants who encounter a noise problem may contact an External Events and Conference Housing staff member who will assist in addressing the situation.
Conference participants are not allowed to sign in guests unless pre-approved by your group’s organizer and External Events and Conference Housing staff. If you are unsure whether your group has guest privileges, check with your group’s organizer before attempting to sign in a guest.
If your group has guest privileges, you must sign in your guest at the proctor station. Your guest must provide a government-issued photo ID and must be accompanied by you at all times while in the residence hall. Guests are not permitted to stay overnight and must depart the residence hall by midnight. Failure to do so will result in additional charges that will be billed to the group.
Participants under the age of 18 and their chaperones are not permitted to sign in guests at any time. All persons requesting access to buildings occupied by minors must have a background check on file and must be a registered conference participant or Northeastern University employee.
If parents or guardians will assist minors with their arrival and departure, arrangements must be made in advance with the EECH conference coordinator.
Trash should be removed from individual rooms frequently. Each residence hall has trash disposal locations. Please consult the signage in the lobby or hallways to find the disposal location nearest to you.
Possession or use of items that could be used to harm or threaten another individual is prohibited. Those items include, but are not limited to pepper spray or mace, switchblades, knives, fake guns, tazers, BB guns, fireworks, ammunition, nunchaka (karate sticks), explosive devices, or firearms.
Fireworks of all kinds are considered explosive agents by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. They are illegal and their use is prohibited.
