Living Off-Campus

Whether you're living in downtown Boston or in an adjacent neighborhood, Suffolk is in the middle of it all

Suffolk University can help you find off-campus housing right in the heart of Boston near your classes, extracurriculars, sporting events, and internships. The University’s Off-Campus Housing Office (OCHO) exists as a resource to help assist you in your search for an off-campus apartment near school.

Not only will we guide your process of finding your next home, but our programs and services strive to advocate for commuter needs, educate on off-campus living, and increase commuter involvement within the University and Boston, providing a variety of resources free of charge.

OCHO also offers advice and counseling to both students and parents on topics relevant to living in a Suffolk off-campus apartment spanning leases, finding and living with roommates, and general contact information for emergencies and other serious issues should they arise. We have a year-round open door policy: any time a Suffolk student or his/her parent comes in through our door, we’re ready to provide our services. Please know that we are only an email or phone call away.

Navigating Your Neighboring Community

Suffolk University's off-campus housing options encompass a variety of exciting communities in and around Boston. Regardless of where you choose to live, it’s important to be familiar with the specific ins and outs of your area, as each city and town has different standards, regulations, and policies.
