2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If you're a freshman, you're options aren't great. Space is tight in Boston so the rooms are usually smaller. If you end up in IV you do get the advantage of living above a dining hall, but you also live very far from campus. It does get better when you get older, but it's also super expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Really old building, small room shared with 2 others, lots of dust, bad sound proofing, and across the street to leased apartments with rowdy residents.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I live in White Hall and love it. The building itself is really nice and even has a kitchen that residents can use. The rooms are some of the largest freshman dorms on campus. It's right across the street from Marino Recreation Center so thats really convenient. You do have to cross Huntington to get to classes but the dorm is placed right in between the two sides of campus so it's not a bad walk either way you go.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing selection process is the most stress I've ever experienced. It is very hard to gather people to fill an apartment or you have to wait another week to pick from leftover rooms. Most of the dorms are nice but the leased properties are not very nice. The one I was in for a month was horrible. They put four people in a space meant for two, maybe three. The dorms are right on campus, even the leased properties are only a block off campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is expensive but great.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus housing provided by Northeastern is very accommodating. Most dorms have a modernized atmosphere and offer the comforts you would hope to find in a dormitory building. Freshman housing is distinctly designed for the purpose of meeting people and living in unity among other freshmen. There is a great emphasis placed on "community," so there are plenty of dorm activities and events. All freshman dorms have communal bathrooms on each floor, and most floors are either all girls or all boys. Most freshman-year honors students are placed in better dorms than regular freshmen; some even live in apartment housing.

After freshman year, the University implements a lottery system weighed by seniority. You shouldn't have to worry about getting a bad lottery number, especially if you’re living with multiple people, because each student gets his or her own number. Therefore, whoever has the highest lottery number can pick a living situation for the entire group. The apartment-style housing is very reasonable and designed like an average apartment. The one good thing about living on campus is that the apartments are a lot nicer than those off-campus apartments in Boston.
