Residence Halls

Make yourself at home on campus—unparalleled housing in the center of Boston

As a residential student, you'll find your academic home in our classrooms and your literal home in one of Suffolk's welcoming housing options. So, read on and get those decorating ideas going.

Housing at Suffolk University

When it comes to views of Boston, you are not going to find anything like this at another university in the city. Since Suffolk is in the center of downtown Boston, our dorms are in places that are quite enviable to residents of the city. Your room will be in the center of the action, steps from the public transit, shopping, restaurants, theatres, and cultural attractions that make city life so exhilarating.


No matter where you live, there will be several resident assistants (RA) in your residence hall. These RAs are returning students who are selected through a very competitive process. They develop community within their building through special programs that will help you get to know your neighbors and Suffolk's residence life policies. A Resident Director, who is a professional University staff member, will live in your hall, too.

Room Amenities

Your room will have a twin XL bed and mattress, a desk and chair, a wardrobe, and a dresser. All rooms have overhead or wall-mounted lighting and are painted off-white. All student rooms have a window (some have two!) that is fitted with a blind and all rooms are carpeted and air-conditioned. Your room will be wired for satellite television and internet services and will have wireless internet access.

If you live in an apartment, it will be fully furnished, complete with living room furniture and a kitchen including an electric stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and microwave. And great news: The cost of these services is included in your room and board charges.

Meal Plans

You must be on the University meal plan, except if you live in an apartment at 10 West Street. The Chartwells Higher Education provides all dining services at Suffolk University. You'll find dining halls in 150 Tremont and Miller Hall, which serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. On weekends, brunch and dinner are served. Each evening, these halls offer a “late night” dining period. The meal plan is a debit card; all items are a la carte and will be deducted from your meal plan balance.

Friendly reminder: All University housing is alcohol- and smoke-free.
