Questions
I am a newly accepted student at Lesley and would like to become a resident student. How do I go about this?

If you are a new student, please contact your Admissions counselor and they will be able to provide you with the information you need.

I am currently enrolled in Lesley University and commuting from my home. How do I apply to live on campus?

As a currently, enrolled student, you should e-mail reslife@lesley.edu and a staff person will provide you with the Housing deposit link and meet with you to answer your questions.

How do I sign up to live in a single room?

All students can place their name on a waiting list for a single room. Students should remember that single rooms are limited so they are encouraged to find a person to be a roommate. New students can request to live with someone if they have met someone they would like to share a room with, or the Residence staff will match people randomly.
