Welcome to our exciting, urban, residential campus!

BU is unique in that we guarantee housing for four years. That means you will never be more than an easy walk from your classes, dining halls, the GSU (student union) and the Fitness and Recreation Center. During your years at BU you could live in a historic brownstone, high rise apartment, or specialty residence. Do you want to live with students from your school or college? There’s an option to do that. We even have a specialty Earth House residence that participates in the annual RecycleMania and has weekly dinner discussions on energy efficiency! Whatever your living preference, BU has a place for you.

Take a look at some of the places in which you might live your first year.
