The Housing Fair is an intensive apartment and roommate hunt in Boston. Over the course of two and a half days, you can meet with reputable realtors, view apartments, and meet roommates if you need them!

Know Your Rights: Fair Housing is for Everyone
Don’t expect others to know or respect your rights as a renter. The Suffolk University Law School Housing Discrimination Testing Program will present a summary of fair housing laws and share relevant and helpful information that everyone should know when looking for a place to live.
At this social you can meet and speak with other students to find a roommate or two. A light dinner will be served. Your guests are welcome to attend this event, but be sure you make an effort to talk to and share information with potential roommates. If you are not seeking a roommate, we recommend that you join us at the Friday event instead.
