CfSI Apartments, which are used by students in our Semester in the City program during the academic year, are perfect for students in town for summer sessions, or interns in Boston for the summer. Located in the heart of Allston Village, the apartments are blocks from bars, restaurants, grocery stores and student-friendly shops. Multiple bus routes and the B-line (green line) are within a five minute walk.

We have options to rent private or shared bedrooms within 3- and 4- bedroom apartments (with beds for 5), or to rent an entire apartment.
