Dormitory Safety

For Students On and Off Campus

The safety of all our students is of the utmost concern to Boston University. Although the condition of privately-owned off-campus apartments is not the University’s responsibility, our concern remains the same. When deciding on an apartment, you should ask certain questions of a prospective landlord.

These safety questions, just like rent and location, are essential for your safety. It is also crucial that you know your responsibilities as you and your roommates run a household, perhaps for your first time.

Students living on campus have the benefit of the University’s stringent and effective fire-safety precautions, but they are just as responsible for knowing campus fire-safety procedures and regulations.
