The Treehouse Residence

578 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115

Looking for a unique and professionally diverse community to call home? Home to more than 250 MCPHS students, the Treehouse Residence is shared with our Colleges of the Fenway neighbor Massachusetts College of Art and Design, enabling our students to make connections with students from other disciplines.

The Treehouse Residence features twenty floors of two- to five-person suites, all housed within a beautiful space designed to meet the diverse needs of our students.

The Treehouse features co-ed floors. The suite-style housing features double or triple rooms and a shared bathroom.

Each floor includes workrooms for study and team collaboration. The Treehouse also features lounges with plenty of seating, as well as group study rooms. The Treehouse also houses a game room and TV lounge, perfect for taking a break with friends.

On the ground floor, students enjoy access to a café that serves coffee, pre-prepared meals, and snacks. Here, students will find a beautiful seating area with leather couches and tables, where they can take a break with friends or study. Students can also take advantage of a convenient vending area for quick snacks. Students also enjoy access to a community kitchen in the Treehouse.

Residents of the Treehouse enjoy access to an on-site Fitness Center, in addition to the more comprehensive gym facilities available through Wentworth Institute of Technology.

The Treehouse is staffed by trained student Resident Assistants on each floor and the Area Coordinator for our Shared Campus, who are available to students 24/7 for support and assistance.

Students in residential housing on our Boston campus enjoy a comfortable and safe environment. The Treehouse has 24-hour security, with all students and guests entering through a staffed checkpoint at the main entrance.

“I love living in the Treehouse not only because of the view, but also because it provides the perfect balance of space and responsibility: in-suite full bathroom and in-building kitchen, laundry, and gym. There are floor-to-ceiling whiteboards in the hallways, so that I can write out study guides or a friend can leave a note. I don't mind the walk to the main building for classes because I love seeing the city!—Alessandro, Pre-Med/PA
