Subletting 101
Not in Boston this summer? Need a place to stay before your new lease begins? Here's what you need to know about subletting:
Subletting your room while you're away:
1. Check your lease: Does your lease allow you to sublet?  Read the addendum too. Some landlords require a fee or prohibit subletting.
2. Talk to your roommates: Tell them early that you will be leaving and subletting your room, especially if your room is shared. Things will go smoother if there are no surprises!
3. Create a profile to list your room: Our Housing Database is a great tool to post your available room!
Looking for a place to sublet?
1. Figure out what you need: Do you have a preference for location, price or number of roommates?
2. Create a profile to find a room: Our Housing Database is a great tool to look for an open room.
3. Ask around: You would be surprised how effective word of mouth can be! A friend may be looking to sublet their room.

Study Tipsstudy
Everyone's favorite time of year is almost here...exams! No? This can be a stressful time of year, but it doesn't have to be! Here are some tips to survive finals week:
Plan your time effectively:
Know when your finals are and which are going to require the most studying. Set a schedule and get those pesky assignments out of the way before the last minute!
Find a sweet study spot! Campus has lots of places to study. The library is open 24/7 with reservable study rooms. The Curry Student Center and dining halls are great options with great food. If you prefer a more solitary location, don't forget your own room off campus! Outside studying can be great, such as on Centennial or Krentzman Quad
or the plaza outside the Christian Science Center. Wherever you study, make sure you won't be distracted!
Treat yourself well: Sleep well, not only the night before your exams, but in the days and weeks before. Avoid food high in fats and sugars, stick to fruits and vegetables and take time to relax. Go to dinner and a movie, or volunteer at our April 13 Breakfast Club!

Never leave your valuables unattended.
Even if you are going to be gone for "just a minute" an unattended wallet or cell phone is a quick target for a thief.

Avoid leaving easily stolen items in open view.
This includes windows in your apartment and in your vehicle. If you can see it from the outside, so can a thief!

Avoid carrying large sums of money.
Don't make yourself a target. Bring only what you need.

Be a good neighbor, keep these responsible neighbor tips in mind:
1. Avoid roof deck gatherings. Most decks aren't built to support crowds. You risk injury and consequences if your lease prohibits roof access.
2. Quiet hours in Boston are 11pm to 7am. Be considerate of your neighbors and avoid a police visit.
3. Be mindful of noise traveling through open windows. Respect your neighbors and stick to a reasonable volume.
4. Secure your windows every time you leave to prevent break-ins.
5. NO open containers of alcohol outside, even if you're 21. This is illegal.
6. Clean up after outdoor activities.
7. Treat your neighbors how you would want to be treated.

Dear Roaming Husky  
Dear Roaming Husky
I'm moving off campus for the first time in September, but I need to move out of my dorm and fly home in April. Where do I put all my stuff for four months?
- Pack Rat
Dear Pack Rat,
With so many students on co-op, study abroad and leaving for summer every year, there are lots of local moving and storage companies. Our website has a list of student-friendly services that offer rates for summer and semester-long storage. Some companies also offer free boxes and curbside pick-up/drop-off. Don't delay! Many students are in the same position and storage spots will run out fast!
