Housing and Dining

Students are guaranteed BU Housing for eligible programs.

Boston University Housing offers a variety of housing options throughout the year for CELOP students such as university residences, also known as “dorms”, and other residences. Living in BU Housing is also a great opportunity for students to practice their English.

To apply for BU Housing, students must first submit an application and be accepted to a CELOP program. After being accepted to one of our programs, we will provide instructions on how to submit an Online Housing Application. Boston University Housing processes all applications and informs students on room assignments. Boston University Residence License Agreement is a fully BINDING contract. There are no housing cancellations. By entering the electronic signature (BU ID number), you are confirming that you want to live in Boston University housing.

BU Housing

BU Housing does not provide bedding, towels, or pillows. You will need to bring those items or purchase them when you arrive in Boston. There are many stores near or on the BU campus where you can purchase them. When you live in a BU dormitory you will usually share a room with one of more people. Former CELOP students tell us that living in BU Housing with other students, both American and international, is an important part of their Boston University experience. All BU Housing options are secure and have a Resident Assistant available to help you adjust to your new home.


Off-Campus Housing

Students may also choose to live off campus. Students who choose to live off campus are strongly encouraged to make their housing arrangements well before arriving in Boston. Boston University does not provide housing for married couples or students with children. If you choose to live off-campus, please note that you are responsible for finding appropriate living accommodations.

CELOP does not arrange, inspect, endorse,
or recommend any specific off-campus option for students.
