Northeastern University Housing Summer I Application and Selection

Upperclassmen summer i

We have taken student feedback related to required moves from semester to semester seriously and have developed a summer assignment process designed to minimize the disruptions caused by multiple moves.


Applications are live in December on your myNEU Housing Online. Filling out the application is not binding, so you need to pay a Summer I Housing Deposit by the February deadline to secure your place in the room selection process, or if your current building is open, secure your Spring space for the summer. Deposits will be accepted after the February deadline, but you will not be guaranteed to take part in the selection process, or guaranteed to stay in your Spring assignment.

If you would like to receive email reminders about summer deadlines, please apply for summer housing by the January deadline.

If You Have a Spring Assignment in an Open Building

If your Spring assignment is in a building that is designated open for the summer and you have paid the deposit prior to the February deadline, we will assign you to that space for the summer semester before the start of Summer I selection. Additionally, you will be able to pull a friend into any vacancies in your room during the Pull-in Selection Process. Once you receive confirmation of your assignment, to view the vacancies in your room, please review your roommate information for the summer on Housing Online to see who is booked to your apartment/suite.

Please note: If you have a compelling reason why your Summer I assignment is not in your best interest, you may contact us (

If You Do NOT Have a Spring Assignment in an Open Building

If your current assignment is in a building scheduled to close for summer 2018 OR you are returning from being off campus during spring semester, you will need to take part in the Summer I Housing Selection process.

Summer I 2018 Selection Guide for Pull-in and General Selection (posted closer to selection)

  • Pull-in Selection process: If you have a friend that will have a Summer I vacancy in their room or apartment within an open building, they may pull you in.
  • Group Selection – You will be able to select as a group and fill-in available apartments.
  • General Selection – You will be able to select as an individual, on your own, from all remaining vacancies.

Housing Assignment letters for Summer I semester will be e-mailed in early April.

IF It is after selection

Housing is still available. We have very limited types of apartments, no singles. If you are interested, you can speak with the Assistant Director, who will be happy to let you know what we have before you pay your deposit. Please email with your name and NUID number to inquire.  If you like what we have, you will be required to apply and pay a nonrefundable housing deposit.  Please note that once you pay the deposit you will be held to the cancellation schedule and fees.


Because there are less students in university housing for the summer, not every building remains open. If your Spring building will be open for summer, and you have applied and paid your summer deposits, you will automatically be placed into that space. If your building is not open, you will be able to choose a new room in the summer I lottery. Summer open buildings for 2018 will be posted here typically in mid-February.

Air Conditioners

For buildings that do not have central air, air conditioners will be available to rent at a half summer or full summer rate. 

Request form will be available on Housing On-line under Forms/Requests and "Summer AC Request"

What are the room rates?

Summer room rates are typically half of a full semester for each summer term, so a full summer would be the same as one full semester. Information on room rates can be found here.


Consolidation Housing is for you! Programs that leave a few weeks into summer session will be given a consolidated housing option for their short summer stay.
