10 West Street

Opened in January 2008, this residence hall houses 269 students in apartments and suites. Suites accommodate three to six students and apartments accommodate two to eight students. There are single and double bedrooms within the suites and single, double, triple, and quad bedrooms in the apartments. Apartments have their own private kitchen. All Suffolk University housing is alcohol- and smoke-free.

The building sits in Boston’s bustling Downtown Crossing neighborhood, amid marquee shopping destinations and historic theaters, with Chinatown’s eateries a short walk away. Nearby MBTA stations stand ready to connect you to the rest of the city. The residence hall features exercise rooms and on-site laundry facilities.

10 West earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Sustainability highlights in this residence hall include water and energy efficiency, low-emitting materials, and using more than 20 percent recycled materials in construction.



The suites house three to six students. There are two to four bedrooms and all of the students within a suite share a bathroom. Like the Miller Hall Suite, there is no shared living room. All suites open into a furnished common area. Residents are responsible for maintaining the bathroom, including providing supplies and cleaning the bathroom.

Standard Apartment

The apartments house two to eight students (typically sophomores). Each apartment has the same bedroom furniture as the residence halls.
