Other tips for saving money: 

  • Know the difference between luxuries and necessities.
  • When going out, take a certain amount of money for the night and spend only that. Don't leave a tab open on your card.
  • Drive a car to coop? Check out for the cheapest gas in your area.
  • Cut out name brand products and buy generic for paper towels, toilet paper, etc. 
  • Unplug appliances you aren't using; hairdryers, coffee pots and phone chargers still use electricity even if they aren't turned on.

Spring Cleaning...Inside AND Outside! 


Spring will be in Boston soon enough! That means fun walks outside, along with a view of the trash that has been hiding under our winter snow.  


Fear not, you can do something about this!

Volunteer for NU's Neighbor to Neighbor and our Breakfast Club. Both are great ways to get involved in the community and do some spring cleaning!


The Breakfast Club will be meeting @ noon on both Sunday, March 17 and 24 in Mission Hill

Ask Roaming Husky
Dear Roaming Husky  
Dear Roaming Husky,
My friends and I have found an apartment we're interested in, but we're confused by our lease! I'm not sure if terms in the lease conflict with other rules in the addendum. Can you help?
-Legally Confused 
Dear Legally Confused,
We're happy to review the lease with you! Before you sign, it's important to understand all of the rules and expectations stipulated in your lease. Some landlords also include an addendum with additional rules, beyond the lease. Schedule a time to discuss your lease with us and get your questions answered!

With warm weather around the corner, Boston's cyclists will be out in full force. Consider these safety tips when you hop on your bike! 


Lock up your bike with a chain and U-lock. Most stolen bikes were only secured with a chain, don't become a victim!

Keep records of your bike's serial number, its description and cost. Save these in a safe spot.

Register your bike for $5 with NUPD at 716 Columbus Ave. 

Wear reflective clothing at night to alert drivers.

NEVER lock your bike to handrails on building steps or ramps! Pedestrians need clear walkways.



NUPD: 617.373.2121         Emergency: 911
