Lesley University offers summer housing in traditional and Victorian Style residence halls.
The Lesley University campus is located in urban Cambridge, Massachusetts. The residence halls, located in the campus quad area, are conveniently located to classrooms, various offices, the student center, dining facilities and Public Safety. The library is located on our historic Brattle Street Campus, a short ten minute walk from the quad campus. Many local shops, restaurants, supermarkets and T stops are conveniently located around our campus community. Summer housing is set in traditional-style residence halls as well as in Victorian houses. We welcome you and hope you enjoy your stay on our campus at Lesley University. Please read below for more information regarding accommodations, and other guidelines for your summer housing stay.
When you live on campus during the summer, you will be assigned to one of our traditional style residence halls or Victorian houses. Summer housing placement is based on availability. We will do our best to accommodate your special housing request in order to ensure that you have a pleasant stay during the summer. We regret that Lesley University does not match roommates during the summer sessions.
Residence hall amenities and what to bring:Most buildings have credit card-operated laundry facilities with shared community bathrooms. Not all residence halls are air-conditioned and there is limited availability of air-conditioned rooms. If air-conditioning is unavailable, we will automatically assign a room without air-conditioning and adjust the rate accordingly. Your room will be furnished with a standard twin size bed, dresser, and desk. Prior to your arrival, your bed will be set with a fitted and flat sheet, one pillow and one blanket. For your convenience, we will also provide two towels but please come prepared with extra towels, wash cloths, and your own personal care products as we do not provide toiletries. Also, an ethernet cable cord will be needed for internet access and will not be provided by the Office of Residence Life. There are a few convenience stores and pharmacies located within walking distance of campus.
