 #SmartHuskySubletting Tipssmarthusky


A summer sublet for a short-term housing crunch still means responsibility. If you have just moved in or experiencing a roommate conflict, it's never too late to communicate about living expectations.


Here are some TIPS:

1. Ask about trash removal, cleaning, and food sharing/storage expectations.

2. Spend time getting to know each other!

3. If there is a conflict, take the time to communicate directly to the other person. Northeastern expects students to respect others and engage in appropriate communication.

4. This living situation may change soon. What did you learn from this experience that you can apply to your Fall living situation?

If you make the decision to drink alcohol this summer, keep these points in mind: 
  • Drink plenty of non-alcoholic or non-caffeinated beverages, such as water or sports drinks.
  • Never swim or be in the water when intoxicated.
  • Never drive a car or boat while intoxicated.
  • If you take medication regularly
    ask your doctor if you need to be extra cautious when outdoors and in the sun and heat. Mixed with alcohol, you may be at greater risk for heat-related illness.

Always lock doors & windows at night, especially if you live on the 1st or 2nd floor. Safety bars, riser restrictors and screens do help, but can be defeated by a criminal.
Watch out for Tailgaters
Be aware of unknown individuals trying to access your building by "tailgating" behind you as you enter. Never allow someone you don't know into your building and never prop doors.
Use the Campus Shuttle Service
Regular shuttle service from campus to off-campus residences within 1.5 miles every thirty minutes from Snell Library and Ruggles Circle.
Be Safe When Taking a Cab or Livery Vehicle

Dear Roaming Husky
Now that we have warm nights, I'm outside more. How can I stay safe when walking home late at night?

Dear Walker Worried,
Your safety is important at all times! Follows these tips:
1. Be aware of your surroundings; keep your head up and make quick eye contact with others.
2. Don't be distracted by talking on your cell phone or listening to music. Don't wear headphones!
3. Avoid walking alone late at night. Walk with friends!
4. If you think someone is following you, cross the street, and switch direction or walk into a business.
5. Trust your instincts and believe in your ability to scare or distract an attacker.
6. Call 911 at any time.
