With more than 30,000 students, Boston University (BU) is the fourth-largest independent university in the United States. Often called the most international university in the world, BU is home to over 5,000 international students and scholars from more than 135 countries. As a recent graduate said, “Boston University is so international, I feel as if I have traveled all over the world without leaving the country.”
Stretching along the banks of the Charles River, the two-kilometer-long campus offers a unique blend of tranquility and activity, history and modernity. From our peaceful waterfront parks to the urban amenities of Commonwealth Avenue, from our historic Bay State Road town houses to our state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, there is something for everyone at BU.
As a full-time CELOP student, you will have full access to all BU facilities and resources, allowing you to truly experience life at a United States university. You can live among American and international students in a residence hall, eat in University cafeterias, study in one of our many libraries, and exercise or play sports at the campus athletic center. It is your choice to get involved as much as you want—there are lectures to attend, sports to play, clubs to join, and many, many people to meet.
