Prospective, Admitted, and New Students


During the COVID-19 situation, the BU Hillel building will be closed until further notice. In line with Boston University, all classes are remote for students and on-campus activities cancelled. We will be in touch if we have your name/contact information for a virtual welcome to BU Hillel. You should be rest assured that whatever we face for the 2020-21 academic year, BU Hillel is going to be here for you – to care, support, and welcome you. Whether we are virtual, socially distant in person or other, BU Hillel staff and student leaders are planning to engage with the freshmen class.  Click HERE if you are an incoming freshman in the class of 2024.
