On-campus housing is not guaranteed for exchange students, due to limited availability.The housing options vary each semester depending on availability. There are, however, numerous housing options, both on- and off- campus, available to international students.


Northeastern provides a variety of on-campus housing, with options for both traditional dorm rooms and apartment-style units in residence halls. Residence hall applications will be provided and should be submitted as soon as possible, as rooms are allocated on a first-come first-served basis. Housing applications received after the application deadline are at risk of not being accommodated.

Please note that although we try our best to place interested undergraduate exchange students in on-campus housing, this is NOT guaranteed, due to limited availability.


The market for off-campus housing in close proximity to the University is very competitive. Allow ample time to find an apartment that best suits your needs; this process can take several weeks.

Temporary Accommodations

Students who arrive in Boston without having established their living arrangements will need to find short-term lodging.
