Over the past month, most of Greater Boston’s largest Universities have made announcements that they plan to significantly scale down remote learning for the Fall 2021 semester. The much anticipated news was greeted with a collective sigh of relief from thousands of Boston professors and college students, most of whom have been struggling with remote learning. The announcements also bodes well for the off-campus housing market in Boston and the thousands of businesses that rely on the student population for business.

The apartment rental market in Mission Hill is heavily reliant on the local student population. It’s situated just south of Fenway and Northeastern, providing students quick and easy access to some of Boston’s largest Universities. It’s also considerably less expensive than renting close to these schools and it provides plenty of options for 3 and 4 bedroom apartments so students can save splitting rent.
