Residential Life



Living on campus is one of the most exciting aspects of your college career! The Office of Residence Life and Housing is committed to creating an environment that is supportive of your individualism while allowing you to connect with peers. Our social, academic, and service programs are designed for you to experience all the great things that BFIT has to offer.

The Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology offers limited housing at the Midtown Hotel which is located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, on 220 Huntington Avenue, across the street from the Prudential Center and only a 10-15 minute walk to the main campus.

Your hotel room has views of the Prudential, the Christian Science Center, Symphony Hall and only steps from the shopping centers at Copley Square! You’ll be living in the heart of it all!

City Living!

Students will be assigned to a double or triple hotel room in a section of the hotel that is just for BFIT students (no singles available)! Each room is large enough to not have bunk beds (although the beds are stackable). Please contact the residence life office at for housing costs for the academic year.

Two Graduate Residence Coordinators (GRCs) live onsite throughout the academic year. They will conduct bi-monthly meetings at the residence hall to assist students with the transition to college, build community, create social opportunities through educational and social programming, and advise the Residence Hall Association. Residence Life staff will review and enforce all policies of BFIT and Midtown Hotel.

There are additional programs that involve the ability for students to purchase a lunch plan at local eateries and a discounted student membership at the Wang YMCA of Chinatown, which can be used at the YMCA off Huntington Ave, which is next door to the Midtown Hotel. These costs are separate from the housing agreement.

A $150 housing deposit is required to reserve a room. There will be a waiting list once all rooms are filled.
Returning students should submit their room deposit no later than the last week of May each year. Incoming new students should submit their room deposits no later than the first week of August.
