Allocations Board

The Allocations Board is an organization on BU’s campus tasked with distributing a portion of the Community Student Fee (CSF) to on- and off-campus events held by undergraduate student organizations.  The AB is composed entirely of undergraduates from across BU’s schools, residence halls, and student groups.  Though each member attends every Monday night meeting and staffs the office, members receive no compensation other than the joy of subsidizing and encouraging great events.

We hope this site serves both as a resource to groups requesting funding and for students curious about how their CSF is distributed, and how they can become involved in the process.

Please contact us, either through this site or at with any questions or concerns. AB Members also have Office Hours!

  • The AB is out of funds for 2013-2014! Student groups planned and put on over 300 amazing events this year, keep an eye out for our end of the year report. As our rolling audit comes in, we allocate! However groups are encouraged to begin submitting requests for next year!
  • PLEASE try to get all requests in before 5:30 PM on Mondays – anything later may not be reviewed until the following week. Thanks!!
  • FOOD POLICY: “The AB will consider funding food provided it is a unique AND educational component relevant to the event. Funding will be further considered if the food supplements cultural and/or religious aspects of the group’s mission and the event. The AB may also fund with the discretion of expected attendance, creativity and other regular funding criteria.”
