Application Process

The Summer Session Housing Application will be available via the Agora Portal beginning April 6 and are due by June 5. Please note: You will need your BC username and password to access your account and apply for housing. Due to space restrictions, housing assignments will be granted based on the date we receive your application.  Once housing is filled the online application will be closed regardless if the application deadline has not passed.  All students applying for STM Housing must confirm that they have read and agree to the Summer Housing Residence Agreement during the application process.

If you have a specific person with whom you want to share your room or apartment, please indicate so on the application form. You may request a only person who is taking the same sessions as you are. We are unable to "hold" a space for 2 weeks until a friend arrives. Conversely, should your roommate/apartment mate leave earlier than you, we will need to fill the bed space with a new student.

Once your Summer Housing Application has been submitted, it will retain the status "Incomplete" until it has been processed by staff. Once it has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email. Application processing will not begin until Tuesday, May 24th. In order for the application to be approved, you must be registered for a course within the applicable session. Students not registered upon submission of a Summer Housing Application will not be approved. To prevent a delay in processing, please register for your courses prior to applying for housing.

If you require assistance submitting your application, please call 617-552-4727 until May 20th between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and 617-552-5555 from May 19th until August 5th between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m.  We are unavailable by phone May 17 - May 19.

If you have already applied for STM Housing and would like to update your application in any way, please email us at by June 15.

Payments & Refunds

Bookings and associated charges will be created for all approved applications using the dates provided in the application. All fees will be charged directly to your student account. All charges are prorated, and a check-in prior to the approved date of arrival or a check-out after the approved date of departure will generate additional charges on your student account. No refunds or adjustments may be made for cancellations or stays shorter than those applied for unless you have cancelled your application via "My ResLife" or have notified prior to your approved date of arrival.
