On-Campus—Warren Towers

We are happy to offer on-campus accommodations to families and friends during Commencement Weekend. Warren Towers, a traditional-style, non-air-conditioned dormitory at 700 Commonwealth Avenue, is located conveniently in the heart of central campus and serves as a great home base for all your weekend activities.

Tour Warren Towers

Rooms are available starting at 3 pm on Thursday, May 14 through 10 am on Monday, May 18. There is no Sunday check-in.

Single and double rooms are available. Each room includes a twin bed, desk, chair, dresser, and closet per guest. Beds are made upon arrival and include sheets, bedspread, and pillow. One set of towels and soap is provided. There is no daily maid service. Traditional, dormitory-style living includes single-gender community bathrooms with showers on each floor.

Complimentary, 24-hour parking is available in the Warren Towers Garage all weekend long.

2020 Rates

  • Single Room (1 guest): $79 per room, per night
  • Double Room (2 guests): $119 per room, per night

You must be 22 years of age or older to reserve a room. Anyone that is 17 years of age or younger must be accompanied by their own parent or legal guardian.
A child age 12 or younger who does not require his/her own bed may stay in your room at no additional cost. Sleeping bags are suggested. Additional pillows, linens, and towels will not be provided.

Due to the large number of students that will be staying in the Student Village through Commencement Weekend, there is insufficient availability to offer guest accommodations in those residence halls.

Overnight reservations can be purchased online now through Monday, May 11 at 5 pm EDT:

Off-Campus

The greater Boston area offers myriad accommodation from quaint neighborhood B&Bs to luxurious hotels along Boston’s waterfront and everything in between to meet your particular lodging needs. But remember, because BU’s Commencement Weekend is the same as many other area colleges and universities, hotels fill quickly so reserve your rooms as early as possible.
