Fall 2021 Reopening Plans
We will reopen our campuses for classes, activities, and residential living in Fall 2021. Find the latest information on our Fall 2021 Plan page.

Summer Housing Rates

We have summer housing options available in our traditional-style residence halls and Victorian houses. Please continue reading for more information regarding accommodations, and other guidelines for your summer housing stay.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Residence Life Office at 617.349.8585 or email us at reslife@lesley.edu.


When you live on campus during the summer, you’ll 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

    Most buildings have credit card-operated laundry facilities with shared community bathrooms. Not all residence halls are air-conditioned and there’s limited availability of air-conditioned rooms. If air-conditioning is unavailable, we’ll 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’ll also provide two bath towels.

  • What to Bring
    • Extra towels
    • Wash cloths
    • Personal care products
    • Ethernet cable cord for internet access
