Student life in Boston

Living at Suffolk University goes beyond residence halls and dining. Our campus is surrounded by diverse cuisine, historical landmarks, live music and museums. You can find Suffolk's history and culture intertwined with Boston's energy.

Living on-campus offers many benefits including better academic performance and more opportunities to speak English and share your culture with US students. Enjoy free tutor-assisted study halls, recreation facilities and dining halls. Residence Life staff and Suffolk University Police Department Security are available 24 hours a day to ensure you feel safe on campus. Plus, living in the residence halls is a great way to meet new friends.

Though on-campus housing is exclusive to undergraduates, graduate students can explore various and unique off-campus housing options.
