Housing Application Process

  • When do current students apply for the new academic year housing?

    Current HLS students living in HLS Housing will receive a housing application announcement in late March.

    The full application, lottery and room selection process happens in April.

  • What if I want to live with another HLS student?

    HLS Housing has several multi-room options for HLS students to live together for the academic year:

    • Hastings Hall – Two-bedroom suites
    • 1637 Mass Avenue – Two-bedroom apartments, two-bedroom efficiency suites (available exclusively for 2L, 3L J.D, and S.J.D.)
    •  Mellen Street – Three-bedroom house (available exclusively for 2L, 3L J.D, and S.J.D.)
    • 5 Mellen Street – Five-bedroom house (available exclusively for 2L, 3L J.D, and S.J.D.)

    During the housing application process you can either create a group or join an established group.  When room selection opens the group member with the earliest lottery time slot may assign members of their group to the suite/apartment they choose.

    All members of the group must sign their own room license agreement/apartment lease.

    To learn more about groups and suitemates please check the Groups & Suitemates page.

Returning to HLS Housing

  • What if I previously lived in HLS Housing and want to return?

    Students who previously lived in HLS Housing and would like to return may join the in-room returners for room selection in April if they have checked-out for one of the following reasons:

    • a study abroad program
    • on an LOA

    Please contact HLS Housing with a request to join April’s room selection.

    If the reasons above do not apply to you, you may apply to HLS Housing on June 1st with all other general applicants.
