Housing is given on a first come, first served basis. It is necessary to submit a Housing Agreement & Preference Form along with a deposit to reserve your spot on campus. Housing assignment priorities are based on the date of deposit. Due to the demand for on-campus housing and limited amount of space available, the College is unable to guarantee housing for all students. Early applications are strongly recommended. A completed Housing Agreement, signed by the student, indicates acceptance of the terms and conditions outlined in the Housing Agreement. Please be aware that the agreement is for the full academic year, including both the fall and spring semesters and that assignment to a specific building and type of room cannot be guaranteed. To obtain a Housing Agreement & Preference form, please contact the housing office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, Fisher College does not require any student to live on campus. However, once the student fills out an application for housing, they will be bound by the terms of the housing agreement, including payment for both the fall and spring semesters.
Room assignments are made during the months of July and August for the fall term, December for the spring term, and April and May for the summer terms. As soon as assignments are made a letter will be sent to you with your assignment information.
Students receive placements based on when they deposit and availability. The Office of Housing tries to house students according to their preferences but can’t guarantee a specific room type. If you are requesting a single due to a medical accommodation, reach out to The Office Student Accessibility Services.
The Office of Housing offers roommate agreements which can be used to help guide your conversation at the beginning of your roommate relationship or even before you move into the space together. We also offer roommate mediation with the Resident Assistants of your building or a member of Professional Staff.
On the ERezlife Housing Portal you can fill out the Room Change/Swap request once the room freeze has been lifted after the first two weeks of any semester. The Office of Housing will read your request and reach out with the next steps. Please be advised that the Office of Housing may not be able to fulfill all requests due to a lack of available vacancies.
If you are both new students, you will both have to request each other when filling out the Housing Application through the Erezlife Housing Portal before you arrive to campus. After you’ve moved in you can request a room change/swap after the 2-week administrative freeze.
If something breaks you can fill out a maintenance request by the 108 basement, and they will come in and fix it as soon as possible. In case of an emergency or if something breaks after hours, call Campus Police at (617)-236-8888 and they will contact Maintenance.
Because we do not place residents in spaces according to age, meaning that a 19-year-old can live with a 21-year-old, alcohol is banned in the residence halls to ensure we don’t have minors accidentally in the presence of alcohol. This is in compliance with the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 that requires all institutions of higher education to adopt and implement programs and policies that prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by Students as a condition of the institution receiving federal funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program.
Fisher College recognizes that Massachusetts has decriminalized recreational marijuana for those 21 and older. However, Marijuana use and possession is still prohibited on campus as it is federally illegal. This policy is in compliance with the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 that requires all institutions of higher education to adopt and implement programs and policies to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by Students as a condition of the institution receiving federal funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program.
On campus we have a Student Center where you can play board games, ping pong, pool, or even play video games on the Wii Switch.
Student Activities plans different events every month, in the past we have had guest speakers come in, Bingo for students every semester with fun prizes, dances, trips to sporting events, showcases for students, a fashion show, as well as fun and educational programming created by the Resident Assistants of each building.
Students are also encouraged to explore Boston. The Fisher College Library and Boston Public Library both offer free or discounted passes to go to different museums in the city.
