Applications and Payments
How do I apply?
You can attend a Beyond Boston Housing Workshop and/or make an appointment with Off Campus Housing and Support Services. After completing this step, you can submit the Housing Application here. Once OCHSS has received the application the Director will give you deposit authorization.
How much is the housing deposit?
The deposit is $200 per term you will be living in the housing, so most co-op students are paying $400 as their deposit. (For example, $200 deposit for Summer II and $200 for Fall). You are required to pay the deposit when you submit your Beyond Boston Housing Application, that will go towards the total housing payment.
How will I be billed?
You will be billed to your NU account in the same manner as NU on-campus housing.
Can I transfer my on-campus housing deposit to a Beyond Boston Housing deposit?
No, all Beyond Boston Housing deposits must be made through NUPAY. Your on-campus housing deposits will be refunded once you cancel with Housing Services – https://www.northeastern.edu/housing/cancellation-deadlines/.
If I decide not to live in the Beyond Boston Housing I applied for, or if I can’t get the Beyond Boston job I wanted, do I still have to pay for the room?
You must cancel your housing in writing with Off Campus Housing and Support Services 45 days prior to the official start date of the co-op term to avoid paying any housing fees. If you cancel within 45 days of the official start date of the co-op term you will be responsible for ALL 26 weeks of payment.
Can I choose my own roommate?
Most roommate assignments are done according to move-in date preference. However, if you want to room with a friend going on co-op in the same area you are advised to contact Off Campus Housing and Support Services to find out if this can be arranged.
Can I live with someone of the opposite sex?
Apartments are single gender by default but upon mutual agreement, we can also provide mixed gender apartments.
Can I move in early/stay late?
Since co-op terms are back to back, early arrivals or late departures directly impact the move-in/move-out schedule for the student living in the housing before or after you, and can be declined by the housing provider if there is not enough time to clean the rooms between students. If there are extenuating circumstances that require you to move-in early or move-out late, contact OCHSS so that we can work with you on arranging short-term accommodations.
What is the set-up of the rooms?
Apartments are a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a full kitchen and living room that includes housewares and linens (2 students per bedroom/four students per apartment).
