The office of Student and Alumni Services assists students, prospective students and graduates with housing, jobs, insurance and more.
Students find housing assistance, job placement, and information on health insurance options, voter registration, transportation information, and child care resources at the office of student and alumni services. Because the school is small, the director of student services is able to work directly with students providing a wide range of referrals and assistance.
Training students for careers in traditional trades is at the very heart of the mission of North Bennet Street School. The Director of Student and Alumni Services works actively with students and graduates to assist them in actualizing their career goals. The NBSS Student and Alumni Resource Center provides students with access to current job postings, research materials and job hunting guides, along with computers for word-processing, laser-printing, and Internet access. One-on-one help is provided preparing the professional tools needed for a successful job search (e.g., resumes, cover letters, and portfolios) and in identifying potential employers. Job listings from employers hoping to hire NBSS graduates are shared with students and alumni. Right now there are many more job listings than we have graduates to fill them.

North Bennet Street School does not have dorms or residence halls. What we do have is a central Boston location in a residential neighborhood and accessible by public transportation to dozens of neighborhoods and local communities. The student service office has created some helpful resources and is happy to help students research housing options.
