Hundreds of apartment vacancies sitting empty

College students left open hundreds of apartment vacancies in Greater Boston. Most stayed in their hometowns when schools re-opened. Many were told by campus administrators to stay away for Covid-19 safety concerns.


FOR RENT signs are going up everywhere. One veteran property broker said he has not seen it as bad as this — college students left a hole in the commercial rental market.

It should be no surprise that these Commercial rate apartment rentals come with discounted security deposits and first and last month rent requirements. Negotiate by offering the landlord Nothing but the rent to move in.

College students do not qualify for Affordable or Income Restricted apartments. They are for permanent Massachusetts residents.
