Billing & Payment

Housing is available on a first come, first serve basis. A $200.00 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your housing choice, and is applied to your final housing balance.  If your housing payment is not made in full within 14 days of your applicaton's approval, Northeastern will release your housing choice, consider your application inactive, and you will forfeit your deposit.

Northeastern will accommodate your first choice housing assignment, if available at the time of your deposit. However, if unable to accommodate, Northeastern will contact you to confirm your secondary option.
