How to apply
Freshmen and transfer students can indicate their interest in up to three specialty community residences on their Housing Interests Survey; no further application or approval is required.
Current students must complete an application and be approved to live in individual specialty community residences. Current students must receive approval before they can select the residence during room selection in the spring or change rooms (through a direct swap, pull-in, or room change offer). This application process is administered by the Office of Residence Life.
Instructions for how to apply to live in a specialty community residence, as well as the application itself, can be found on the Specialty Community Residences website.
There are specific times each year when students are encouraged to apply for specialty community residences (e.g., prior to the Room Selection process). However, students may submit an application at any time.
For more information about applying for specialty community residences, contact the Office of Residence Life at 617-353-4380, or visit any residence office.
