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.

Specialty Residences

Maybe you’re thinking the convenience of a large residence sounds great, but you’d feel more comfortable in a smaller community. Say you want to live with other Fine Arts majors. Or other students who speak Chinese.

BU has another option: specialty floors. These are specific floors within larger dorms for students with similar academic or cultural interests. We also have specialty residence houses for those who prefer a smaller dorm-style residence.

Transfer students

Transfer students are also guaranteed housing during your time at BU. On campus housing is strongly encouraged to help you make the most of your experience here. To learn more, visit the BU Housing website.
