Undergraduate Residence Halls

Living on campus is a one-of-a-kind experience. It creates community around the ins and outs of daily life, immerses you in your learning, and helps you connect with other students.

As an on-campus undergraduate student, choose from traditional residence halls, Victorian-era houses, and suite-style residence halls on our Doble or South campuses.

No matter where you live on campus, you’ll be part of a smoke-free, pet-free environment, and your room will come equipped with:
Something for Everyone
Want to be with students who share your passion? Choose from special-interest housing options. Our undergraduate living communities include:
“Living in the dorms at Lesley has been a life-changing experience. I've learned what it means to be independent, but I’ve done it surrounded by people who care about me.”
Monique Spencer ’17, Business Management & Psychology

24/7 Support

Our Residence Life staff creates an environment that celebrates and respects the diverse perspectives of every student. As an on-campus student, you’ll live alongside our Community Advisors. Advisors keep dorm life fun by helping students plan study groups, movie nights, and other activities that get you out of your room.

They work hard to form one-on-one connections with students, and build community in the residence hall. Chances are, you’ll come to see your Community Advisors as a mentor and friend.

Lesley University’s location between vibrant Harvard Square and Porter Square is an ideal location for selecting off-campus housing. Serviced by multiple bus lines, the Fitchburg/South Acton commuter rail line, and the MBTA Red Line, you’ll discover a wide array of affordable housing opportunities.
