Application Process

To begin the housing process for the Fall 2016 semester, you must first find out your eligibility and apply.

Each student arrives at Northeastern with specific values, interests, and habits. Northeastern housing offers opportunities for learning, socializing and personal growth. Please note that limited numbers of each room type are available. We have economy, standard and enhanced rooms to meet your pricing needs. Room assignments are done on a rolling basis. Rooms will be assigned based on when your housing deposit was received and/or needs and housing preferences.

Are you in search of Summer Housing? Summer deposits are available now. You can simply log-on to myNEU and click on NUPAY, there you will enter the payment system. Next, select "Make a Payment" at the top of the screen and choose the terms to deposit for. Prior to depositing, please be aware of our cancellation schedule.

Please contact the Housing Office with any questions. Students receive all e-mail communication to their Husky e-mail account with the information that pertains to them.

FIRST YEAR STUDENTS

To apply for Fall 2015 Housing:

The deadline to apply for housing was on May 1st, 2015. However, to apply for housing, login through your myNEU Admitted Student Portal. More instructions can be found on Admission's website.

Fall 2015 Information:

Incoming first year students are guaranteed housing and required to live on campus for their first two years. For their first year, the deposit process is handled through the Admissions Office. Once committed to Northeastern, first year students are asked to fill out the roommate compatibility form and select their top three Living Learning Communities. Students accepted into the Honors program are automatically placed and required to live in the Honors Living Learning Community. Housing/assignment related materials will be sent electronically to your Husky e-mail account. The first round of room assignments will be sent out in mid-June. Check regularly for updates throughout the summer. If you require a housing accommodation due to medical or accessibility needs, please fill out the Housing Accommodation/Medical Disclosure Form.

Current first year students heading into their second year in the Fall of 2016 are required to live on campus during the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters and, therefore, are not required to place housing deposits for those semesters. The only requirement is that you submit the housing application through your myNEU by the deadline (will be available in December). Any first year student who do not apply by the deadline will receive a higher lottery numbers as a result of not applying within the allotted time. This requirement to live on campus for your second year is not applicable if you accepted an out of state co-op or study abroad. If so, you must provide appropriate documentation to housing@neu.edu.

You will be asked to accept the terms and condition of the Residence Hall and License Agreement before being allowed to complete your housing application. This agreement commits you to abide by our residence hall policies as well as the cancellation deadlines. If you require a housing accommodation due to medical or accessibility needs, please fill out the Housing Accommodation/Medical Disclosure Form.

NUTerm Students

NUterm is Summer I for current first years. First years participating in NUterm are required to live on campus as it is a continuation of their first year.

We have limited space for transfer students and it is first-come, first-served. Room assignments for first year transfer students are done on a rolling basis once you submit your housing deposit.
