Housing in Boston in the Fall is scarce and expensive, for this reason we suggest you begin your search early. The downtown section of Boston tends to be high priced, while the surrounding communities tend to be more abundant and affordable.  The great majority of students live in communities such as: Allston, Jamaica Plain, Brighton, Roslindale, West Roxbury, Hyde Park or suburbs such as Brookline, Dedham, Newton, Cambridge, Somerville, to name a few.
