What to Bring

Northeastern University, like most other colleges and universities, provides each intern with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, and window shade. This is true whether you are living in standard or enhanced housing accommodation. Some double rooms have only one closet to share with your roommate.

While the summer season is shorter than a traditional semester, we offer suggestions of what you may wish to bring to campus for your summer stay with us.
