Northeastern University Housing Co-op & Study Abroad

Co-op & Study Abroad

Learn and Work Around the World

We mix classroom learning with full-time, professional experiences so that each student leaves Northeastern with an already established skill set, immediately qualifying them for their professional career after graduation.

Co-Op Housing Options

Students are able to live on campus throughout their co-op experience. Second year students are required to live on campus if their co-op is in the Boston area. Upperclass students must apply for housing appropriately if they wish to live on campus during their co-op in Boston.

Co-op Connections offers a limited amount of housing options for those students who secure a co-op in Chicago, New York City, Seattle, and Washington DC. To learn more about the Beyond Boston program, click here.

Are you thinking about Going on co-op
20+ miles outside of the Boston area
and you currently have a housing assignment?

If you are unsure if you are going on coop outside of Boston or study abroad in Spring 2016, we advise you to pay the Spring 2016 housing deposit and cancel if needed. If you do end up being 20+ miles outside of Boston, you will be permitted to cancel your housing without penalty; however, written verification from your coop/academic advisor is required. After we receive written verification from your coop/academic advisor, we will refund your deposit. Please e-mail to request to cancel with your NUID number, no later than December 5th.

For example, let's say that you have a Spring 2016 room assignment. In November 2015, you accept a co-op position for January - June 2016 in Springfield, MA. As long you have written verification of your co-op (such as having your coop advisor email, you can cancel your Spring 2016 housing assignment without penalty. Remember, cancelling requires two steps:

  1. E-mail to request to cancel with your NUID number no later than December 5th
  2. Request that your coop/academic advisor e-mails us written verification of your coop
