Off-Campus Housing: If you are wealthy or have some way of paying $1700+/month for a studio, you can have a nice place to yourself in nice neighborhoods near school. Looking to pay less than $1200? That will get you a tiny box or maybe something rat-infested in a bad neighborhood. Even with roommates, renting here is extremely costly. Realtors will try to lock you into "split" apartments which usually just means someone rooms in the living room with a partition or curtain. Parking is virtually impossible in most neighborhoods, so if you have a car, expect to pay $100
+/month for a private spot or just pay oodles for all the tickets you will acquire. Because Boston is such a college-centered town, there is a mad rush to get into apartments on Sept. 1st. I recommend starting your search far earlier than you feel you need to, look for Aug. 1st or other dates to move in if possible, and plan ahead for the pandemonium that is Boston's move-in day!

Off-Campus Housing: Housing? What Housing? If your looking for a college with tons of housing to go around, this is not the place.
Dorms are only available to freshman and only those that get their applications in on time. As far as off campus housing goes, it can be pretty tough to find something thats not going to make you gulp just looking a the rent, for what your getting. Rent runs from the lowest 500 to anything above 1000. It's imperative that you have roommates because it's so expensive. But the transportation in Boston is excellent so you won't have to much trouble getting around as long as your willing to pay for a T pass (train pass). It's a good idea to meet with the housing director Holly, who is extremely helpful and friendly, she's amazing, but she can really only give you information and point you in the right direction, your the one who has to find a place to live.
