VASI students are able to get a feel for college life by staying in one of Boston University’s residence halls. Male and female students stay in different areas, and all students are assigned another VASI student as their roommate. BU’s residency halls are equipped with 24-hour security personnel and observe a nightly curfew. VASI counselors who are current BU School of Visual Arts students or recent alums stay in the halls with the students to provide guidance and supervision. VASI students who are staying in the residence halls have meal plans which enable them to eat at a number of facilities on campus.
Curfew rules are in place to protect each student’s safety. The residence hall curfew is strictly enforced and is as follows:
Sunday–Thursday nights: 11 p.m.
Friday and Saturday nights: midnight
Rules of Conduct
VASI is a program for serious art students. A student’s failure to act appropriately can interfere with the work of other students and prevent them from obtaining maximum benefit from the offered programs. Rules governing student conduct while enrolled in VASI are provided to each student at registration. Infractions of the rules may result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from VASI. If a student is dismissed for violation of the rules of the program, no tuition or housing refund will be given.
Boston University Student Health Services consists of a walk-in Medical Clinic and a Mental Health Clinic that can be visited by appointment or on an emergency basis. Several physicians and registered nurses are on campus for regularly scheduled office hours between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Services within the Student Health clinics will be provided for a per-visit fee of $25. All medical costs incurred outside the clinic (including, but not limited to, ambulance charges, pharmacy costs, hospital emergency room visits, x-rays, laboratory tests, etc.) are the responsibility of the student’s parent or guardian.
