Thank you for your interest in the First and Second Year Student Residency Requirement Exemption Request process.
All freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus while taking classes or on a co-op assignment in the Boston area. The residency requirement in place at Northeastern has been developed over time and with consideration. Research has shown that first and second year students who live in residence halls build closer relationships with faculty, staff and their peers; become more involved; and are generally more satisfied with their overall university experience. The policy is in place due to the significant link between academic success and on-campus living.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any further questions regarding this process.
