Summer in Salem
Living in a Salem State residence hall offers you a safe and convenient place to call home while taking classes or interning in the Salem/Boston area. In addition, Salem is an ideal location for companies, educational institutions and organizations to consider for a conference destination or for educational retreats and workshops.
Summer students, conference groups and interns are encouraged to consider choosing the residence halls as an affordable housing option from late May through mid-August. Housing is limited, so we encourage you to make reservations early. For more information email Residence Life or call 978.542.6416.
