    Introduction

    Overview of the Globe’s investigation into off-campus housing in Boston

    ABOUT THIS SERIES

    The Boston Globe Spotlight Team’s investigation of off-campus housing in Boston revealed that a collision of greed, neglect, and mismanagement is endangering young people in America’s college capital, enriching some absentee landlords who maximize profits by packing students into properties, and routinely ignore the dictates of critical housing codes. The investigation concluded that Boston’s chief code enforcement agency is no match for the flood of complaints and violations that create dangerous, sometimes life-threatening conditions.
