Off-Campus Housing

Simmons does not offer Graduate Housing during the academic year. The Simmons Off-Campus website is a great resource to find affordable apartment listings in the Boston area. We also have a list of Temporary Housing Options in the Boston area, which can be helpful in finding short-term accommodations while students secure long-term housing. Simmons also provides many commuter services to help off-campus students connect with the larger community and access resources for getting to and from campus.

Additionally, the Simmons University Graduate Student Off-Campus Housing and Roommate Corner Facebook page is a space that has been created to allow current and incoming Simmons graduate students to connect to share housing opportunities and to search for roommates.
