The Returning Student Housing Waitlist is for current undergraduate CAS and SBS Suffolk students returning to the University the following semester. 

If you are a new undergraduate student to the University (first-year or transfer student), please follow the instructions provided by the Undergraduate Admission Office to confirm enrollment and housing.  

No deposit is required and there is no commitment when signing up for the waitlist. RLH will begin contacting students from the Housing Waitlist in mid-May and will continue throughout the summer as spaces become available.

The waitlist is not strictly first-come, first served, although there is an advantage to signing up early! Characteristics such as gender, international status, distance from campus, class year, etc. may affect the order in which students on the waitlist are offered housing. 

Students on the waitlist are not guaranteed to receive an offer for University-sponsored housing. We encourage students on the waitlist to work with Off-Campus Housing Office to navigate their search for off-campus housing! New Suffolk students who deposit for housing will be given priority for the spaces. 

If you have questions regarding the housing waitlist process, please contact our office at 617-305-2500 x 0 or via email at

The Returning Student Waitlist can be found on SU Connect under the Residence Life & Housing "Forms" tab.
