Staying On Campus


Alumni College attendees are encouraged to spend the weekend at BU’s John Hancock Student Village 1 (StuVi1). This apartment-style dormitory sits along Commonwealth Avenue, offering views of downtown Boston and the Charles River. Located on the site of the old Commonwealth Armory, StuVi1 is easily one of the most sought-after accommodations on campus.

This isn’t your typical dorm room.

Alumni College fosters intelligent conversation—even after class has been dismissed. Keep the conversation going as you get to know your roommates; guests at StuVi1 will share a suite with one to three other Alumni College participants.

Worried about having your own space? Never fear! We don’t expect you to share everything with your roommates; there’s enough room for all participants to enjoy their own personal beds. Plus, StuVi1 rooms are stocked with all of the comforts you’d expect to find in your home away from home, including:

  • Sheets
  • Blanket
  • Pillow
  • Bath linens (bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes)
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Lotion
