All entering students are required to have a full meal plan, regardless of which residence hall they are assigned to. Returning students living in either 270 Commonwealth Avenue or 98 Hemenway Street can request a reduced meal plan or no meal plan as those residence halls have community kitchens that are accessible to residents 24/7.
All students are required to pay the housing prepayment before they will be considered for on-campus housing. This prepayment secures the student a spot on campus or a place in our housing lottery. The housing prepayment is non-refundable and non-transferable. If a student pays the prepayment and we do not offer them a place on campus, the prepayment will then be refunded.
