The University offers and maintains a limited number of rooms in shared apartments in neighborhoods that are easily accessible from campus. While these apartments vary in size and appearance, all have been inspected and approved by Suffolk.

Single and double rooms are selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Apartments have a TV, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen. Sheets, towels, blankets, and pillow are provided, as is a weekly cleaning service for common areas. Please keep in mind that students who use utilities in excess may be charged an additional fee. Students must provide their own cleaning products and personal toiletries in the apartments. Students must purchase these items on their own.

SEE: Guidelines for living in a shared apartment (PDF)


Meal plan: Students who live in apartments receive a combination of restaurant vouchers and a gift card for use toward the cost of their meals. The vouchers are accepted in most restaurants around the country and the gift card is very widely accepted. If you want the vouchers and the gift card to go a long way, we recommend that you take advantage of the student prices you will find in cafeterias and restaurants in the area near campus and shop for food at grocery stores and cook at home.

Overnight guests are not allowed in any SUMC accommodation. Visitors (Suffolk students), however, are allowed in residences and apartments between 10:00am and 10:00pm.

If you would like to follow you own routine and cook on your own, an apartment could be the right choice for you.

For all options please refer to the specific guidelines.

There are limited places in residences and apartments.
