Housing Options

Whether you live in one of our downtown residence halls, enjoy a taste of apartment life in one of Boston’s distinctive neighborhoods, or commute to your classes from out of town, you’ll experience college life in our world-class city.

University-sponsored Housing

Make your enrollment and housing deposit by June 1* to secure your spot in University-sponsored housing. Our residence halls are in the heart of Boston, steps from shopping, restaurants, theatres, and cultural attractions that make city life so exciting. They’re also close to public transportation routes that will take you farther afield.

Room styles include:

  • Singles
  • Doubles
  • Suites
  • Apartments

Please note: For students admitted for the spring semester, University-sponsored housing will be allocated on a space-available basis for freshmen and transfer students.

If you're an incoming freshmen for the fall semester you are guaranteed University-sponsored housing for your first two years provided you deposit by June 1* and meet the housing deadline in your second year. Fall transfer students will be considered on a space-available basis.

Once you have a confirmed housing space, you will receive a housing contract from the Department of Residence Life & Housing detailing your next steps and important deadlines.

Students are not required to live in University-sponsored housing and may pursue off-campus or commuting options. Some students choose to live in University-sponsored housing for their first year but move off campus for their remaining time at Suffolk. It is your choice. If you have questions, please contact Residence Life & Housing Services by phone at 617-305-2500 or via email.

*Due to federal delays in processing financial aid, our deposit deadline for new first-year students is now June 1.
