***Please Note (Updated March 24, 2020)

Due to the increased spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States and around the world, Boston University will be holding ALL classes remotely for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. During this time, the Biology Department staff will be available for all normal operations, but staff will be working remotely in order to follow public health recommendations from President Brown and Governor Baker. Due to this, staff will be unavailable onsite but are still reachable by phone and email (Faculty contacts can also be found here). If you are unsure who you should email, please contact bio@bu.edu. The main Biology phone (617.353.2432) is still being answered between 9 am and 5 pm; we appreciate your patience during this time!

If you have deliveries for 5 Cummington Mall, please bring them to the Stockroom at 24 Cummington Mall as they remain open during this time.

For more information on BU’s response to COVID-19, please see the official website.
