To assist with your search for off-campus housing, we recommend the following:
  • Visit Off Campus Student Services in 151 Speare Hall, or view their website www.northeastern.edu/offcampus for advice on tenant rights, what to expect in a lease, and referrals to area realtors.
  • Register to use Northeastern’s Off-Campus Housing Online database:
    www.northeastern.edu/offcampus/apartment. The database is continuously updated with property listings by area realtors and landlords; or use the new Roommate Feature to search for roommates and sublets.
