Housing & Dining
Students in the Summer Study Internship Program have the option to live on campus. Students who choose this option are housed in apartment-style residences that are conveniently located within walking distance to all classrooms on the Charles River Campus and to public transportation. Apartments vary in size, are furnished, and include bathrooms and kitchens. Students must provide their own linens and pillow, cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, and cleaning supplies. All apartments are multiple-occupancy; students will have at least one roommate. All residences include wireless internet access. Students have their mail delivered to their apartment mailboxes by the U.S. Postal Service. Students also have access to laundry facilities.
Housing rates for Summer 2019 will be available on December 15, 2018. The housing rates listed below were for Summer 2018.
- Multiple-occupancy room in an apartment with A/C: $4,368 (13 weeks)
- Multiple-occupancy room in an apartment without A/C: $3,913 (13 weeks)
Note: There is limited availability of apartments with A/C.
Whether you live on or off campus, you have the option to purchase a dining plan or Convenience Points plan. If you select this option, you must complete an Optional Dining Plan Agreement for one of the three dining plans offered or a Convenience Points Plan Agreement for a points-only plan. Optional Dining Plan and Convenience Points Plan Agreements will be available at the beginning of the summer at the Terrier Card Office, 775 Commonwealth Avenue (basement of the George Sherman Union).
If choosing to purchase a dining plan, we recommend starting off with one of the six-week plans, which will cover Summer 1 (Academic Phase). You can always add more weeks later in the summer. Your internship placement may impact your dining decisions so we suggest waiting until your internship is confirmed before choosing your Summer 2 dining plan.
Students in the Summer Study Internship Program have the option of commuting to campus. If you choose to rent, Boston has many available sublets during the summer.
