Fall Move-in

depending on fall housing assignment

We want to welcome you to the Boston campus for the fall 2020 semester. Northeastern University has been working diligently over the past couple of months to prepare our campuses, including our classrooms and residence halls, for the arrival of our students. Every aspect of our planning has been done with the health and well being of our community in mind, including testing every member of our community for COVID-19 and re-configuring indoor and outdoor spaces on campus to reduce density and maintain healthy distancing.
Our move-in and housing processes have been redesigned with these priorities in mind and we are eager to share with you the details

For the most up to date information on health and safety please see the university’s official Reopening Plan.

One of our goals for the move-in process is to keep vehicles off of the street as much as possible. It is important that you follow the steps provided for your specific building in order to keep things running smoothly for yourself and others!

If you are not living with us during the Summer II semester, each building community is assigned a specific range of move in dates and times and each student is assigned a date and time within that period based on their assignment.

For specific move-in information for your buildings, please click the linked building name. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at housing@northeastern.edu.

*Students will only be able to request move in date changes to other dates their building is scheduled to move-in.

If you are are moving off Campus:

Failure to check out by the pre-established deadline may result in lost/discarded property, fines and/or a student conduct violation.

You must complete the following prior to being checked out of your bedspace by a member of the Housing & Residential Life staff:

  • Remove all belongings
  • Throw away all trash/food
  • Clean your bedspace

Once everything has been removed from their room, the student must check out of their space with a member of Housing & Residential Life on the date previously coordinated with their Residence Director. A Resident Assistant will then check the condition of their bedroom and apartment (if applicable) noting any damage. In keyed buildings, the RA will take the students keys and lock the bedroom.

Please note: There is no consolidation housing offered between the end of Summer II 2020, August 18th through September 1st. If you are moving off campus at the end of Summer II, you must make the appropriate arrangements and secure your own space off campus by the final date of Summer housing on August 18th. If you have a lease that begins August 1st, please contact housing@northeastern.edu about prorating your Summer II housing. There are no exceptions as our Fall 2020 move-in cycle begins promptly after Summer II.

If you are moving to a new assignment for Fall 2020:

You will be assigned a move-to/from date in August.Students remaining in university housing in Boston from one semester to the next have a continuous contract. Continuing contract students may remain on campus between semesters. Current and future building staff will reach out to students who need to move between semesters via their Husky email regarding the move-to-from process. More information can be found HERE.

****Any student with a continuous contract will NOT follow Summer II move out dates if they are scheduled to move to a new room. Students that fall into this category should NOT make travel plans to leave campus until they confirm their move-in date with their future building staff. This information is not available until the end of each term.

If you have the same assignment for Summer II and Fall 2020.:

You can stay in your space through the intersession period.

Northeastern University has been working diligently over the past couple of months to prepare our campuses, including our classrooms and residence halls, for the arrival of our students. Every aspect of our planning has been done with the health and wellbeing of our community in mind, including testing every member of our community for COVID-19 and reconfiguring indoor and outdoor spaces on campus to reduce density and maintain healthy distancing.

After securing a Husky ID card, if needed, and a COVID-19 test, you will be permitted entry into your university housing space. In order to comply with the state and the university’s quarantine policies, please remember the following:

  • Your belongings should fit in one 4’x3’x3’ hamper or be able to be carried in one trip.
  • Immediately following the return of your moving hamper, you must enter quarantine.

  • Picking up grab and go food from campus dining facilities.
  • Use of your assigned shared floor bathroom, while wearing masks or face coverings when possible and limiting time spent in the bathroom to essential use.
  • Receiving urgent medical care.
Until your first negative test result is received, students in suites and apartments must likewise remain in their individual bedroom and not common spaces or kitchens within the suite or apartment. Common spaces within residence halls will be closed during the move-in period to assist with the quarantine restrictions.
After your first negative test, you can resume additional activities, including package pick-up at the mail room, storage pick-up at off-site locations, and grocery shopping. After your third negative test, you can resume full campus activities including in-person class attendance.
