4 College Student

Administration: The policies are typically fair and reasonable, and things flow smoothly.

3 College Senior

Administration: I haven't had any problems with rule-breaking and I don't really know anyone else who has. Maybe it's pretty lenient after all.

College Sophomore

Administration: I really wouldn't know, I don't tend to break rules, and I have never been in trouble.

3 College Senior

Administration: I am only familiar with academic policies, but attendance is mandatory for all of my classes

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness of Northeastern University (NEU) is great! Just by being a freshman, I have seen everyone follow the given rules and respect them very much. Most people do not violate the "No smoking in this area" sign. They actually do listen and go smoke at the given spots that they are able to smoke. This makes me think that NEU students and faculty are extremely great at giving and receiving directions and rules.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Northeastern is efficient at keeping students safe, which is certainly a good thing. In order to ensure safety, rules and regulations must be put into effect, and the University certainly doesn't mess around with its policies. Considering the fact that the campus is located in the middle of Boston, it's nice to feel secure and know that you are well protected by the University. 

RAs are usually not looking to get any students in trouble; however, most do take their job seriously, and if you're having a loud party in your room or get caught drinking underage, you will face consequences. With that being said, you will not have to worry about intrusions from RAs or Northeastern security, unless you are doing something wrong and being obvious about it. Mostly, all cases where students are punished by the school are completely warranted. The Boston Police Department usually has no patience for students from any school, and officers will shut down parties that are loud and cause disturbances to neighbors.

Facts & Statistics

You are allowed to have up to three guests in your room, if you are living in on-campus residence halls. You must sign in your guests with the proctor at the front of your building each time you enter the residence hall. This kind of security protects students from strangers and intruders.
