There has been a recent spike in activities from individuals looking to scam students and parents. Please follow these simple common-sense rules to avoid being a victim:

  • Deal locally with people you can meet in person.
  • Fake cashier checks and money orders are common. Banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fraud is discovered weeks later.
  • Never give out financial information.

Note Regarding Boston Maximum Occupancy Law

Boston city law limits the number of undergraduate students that can live together in an apartment located within the city of Boston to a maximum of four. This law only applies to full-time undergraduate students. This law does not apply to apartments located in Brookline, Newton, or other surrounding communities.
