Located in vibrant Harvard Square and less than three miles from downtown Boston, Longy’s campus provides students with access to a wealth of musical and cultural riches throughout New England. From the Boston Symphony Orchestra to the Museum of Fine Arts to the famous Kendall Square, Cambridge’s center of world-shaking innovation, Boston/Cambridge isn’t merely a backdrop—it’s your campus and an integral part of the Longy experience.

Housing Resources

Find an Apartment

Helpful hints for renters and a list of our sponsor housing organizations, go to our Find an Apartment page.

Below is a list of the most popular housing websites. Please note that Longy does not endorse any of these services. Longy also maintains a Housing Available message board.

You can also check out our Longy Roommate Board, for postings from local landlords and realtors.

Find a Roommate

Due to high rental prices in the Greater Boston area, students are encouraged to find a roommate to share the cost of housing and associated expenses.

Longy can also assist you in your search through our Longy Roommate Board. This is a private Facebook group for incoming and current students that helps you connect with other Longy students looking for roommates or a place to live. Students can post directly on to the Facebook page, or fill out this form to have their information posted for them.

Please contact Chantal Tribble, Admissions and Student Services Coordinator, for more information: ctribble@longy.edu
