Housing for New Freshmen

The Office of Residence Life is committed to making a student's first year experience as comfortable as possible. Most of our students choose to live in a LLC (Living Learning Community) which are excellent opportunities for students to connect with their faculty, staff and students who share similar academic interests.

The first year of college offers a wide range of new experiences: living with a roommate, managing money, and organizing free time to meet academic responsibilities. Our Residence Life Team helps you develop the skills and insights you need to succeed academically with the exciting new opportunities and challenges of college.

Housing for Transfer Students

Transferring to UMass Lowell is an exciting and positive step and we are committed to supporting students as they join our community. Transfer students are welcome to live in a LLC and connect even more strongly with their peers. Transfer students that apply for housing are eligible to live in any of our residence halls and we want you to feel supported as you join our community.
