Applying for Shattuck Housing
Thank you for your interest in Shattuck International House. Please click here for late cancellation availability in AY 2013 – 14 (including Summer 2013, and Affiliates)
Before you begin the application for this apartment building, please carefully review the details about the building as well as the rental process. We invite you to review the following pages prior to completing your application: Eligibility, The Facility, Floorplans, Rent Rates and Important Dates and FAQs. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please notice that there are four different types of applications below. Read the descriptions carefully to ensure you are completing the appropriate application. When you are ready to submit an application, please be prepared to provide the following information:
- General demographic information
- Which apartment type you prefer (i.e. one bedroom, two bedroom, two bedroom/roommate match) and price range.
- Please state any special needs or accomodation you may require.
- Please provide a valid and non-expiring e-mail address(es), as much of the initial communication about your application will be conducted through e-mail.
How is my application processed?
We do our best to accommodate your specific housing requests, but there are no guarantees that we can accommodate everyone. Applications are processed based on the following criteria:
- Chronological order (based on when the application was submitted)
- Apartment availability
- Preferences stated, specific requests and our ability to accomodate these requests
You will not receive a confirmation e-mail upon completion of your housing application. Applications are processed ongoing on a daily basis. Upon receiving your application, a housing offer/assignment will be sent via e-mail that includes the lease and payment instructions or information about being put on a wait list. Once you receive an apartment offer, you will have approximately ten business days to read and sign the lease, gather your security deposit, and submit them by mail (this could be longer for international applicants). The deposit for summer session students is the full rental payment. The deposit for academic year students is $1,000. The apartment is officially yours when these documents are received by the Building Manager of Shattuck International House. Detailed information about where to send your documents will be included in your offer e-mail.
We ask for your patience during this process, as it does take time for our office to process all of the applications, answer all inquiries we receive and send out communication to all applicants.
(includes Summer I &/or II terms ONLY)
This application is appropriate for admitted students seeking housing for one or both of the summer terms ONLY.
(includes both/either summer terms and the Academic Year) This application is appropriate for admitted students who wish to apply for housing for a combination of summer terms and the Academic Year.
This application is appropriate for admitted students who wish to apply for housing for the Fall and Spring semesters ONLY.
Non-Student (Affiliate) Applications:
Shattuck is primarily an HSPH student residence with priority given to HSPH students. Shattuck assignments for affiliates are considered on a case-by-case basis and are determined by availability. Affiliates are Harvard community members and include post-docs, researchers and/or employees of the hospitals affiliated with Harvard University.
4- Affiliate Application
Please note that it is unlikely that there will be housing available to this group during the summer due to a large number of requests from HSPH summer students. We strongly encourage you to seek other housing resources as a back-up plan.
