Summer 2012 CELOP Housing Information

Applying for on-campus housing

To live in Boston University on-campus housing while you are enrolled in a CELOP program this summer, you must complete a Summer 2012 CELOP Residence License Agreement.

CELOP will provide you with a Residence License Agreement and the Terms and Conditions of the agreement once you have been accepted to your summer program and have indicated interest in on campus housing.

Carefully read the Terms and Conditions of the Summer 2012 CELOP Residence License Agreement before completing your Residence License Agreement and returning it to:

Boston University Housing
25 Buick Street
Boston, MA 02215 USA
Fax: 617-353-5136

Once your signed Residence License Agreement has been received by BU Housing, it is considered a legally binding agreement between you and the University, and you will not be able to cancel it. You will be responsible for paying for your housing assignment and dining plan for the entire time.

Summer CELOP residence and dining plan rates and dining plan options are detailed below and in the Terms and Conditions of the Residence License Agreement.

**On Monday, May 21, 2012, you will be allowed to check into your residence between 4 and 8 p.m., as residences are readied and made available following the academic year move-out; many will not be ready for move-in at 4 p.m. Luggage storage will be available at your summer residence area if you arrive before your residence has been readied for move-in.

When you are making your travel plans to come to Boston, please try to make them so that you will reach Boston University between the move-in hours listed above. This will make your move into on-campus housing easier.

Remember, Monday, May 28, and Wednesday, July 4, 2012 are holidays. Most administrative offices (including Housing, the Terrier Card Office, and summer residence offices) and CELOP will be closed.

If you confirm your on-campus housing assignment before your arrival in Boston, you should go directly to your assigned residence office to check in when you arrive.

If you do not confirm your on-campus housing assignment before your arrival in Boston or think your Residence License Agreement will not be received by BU Housing before your arrival, you should go directly to the CELOP Program Office, 890 Commonwealth Avenue, second floor, for assistance when you arrive Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

If you arrive after 4 p.m. on a weekday or you arrive on a weekend and you do not know your on-campus housing assignment, you will need to stay in a hotel until the next business day.

Residence assignments

The University will provide you a space in on-campus, dormitory-style housing and a dining plan for the length of time you are enrolled in CELOP this summer. All residence assignments are made on a space-available basis. Most dormitory-style residences have double or triple-occupancy rooms with a shared bathroom. Interest in a particular residence, residence type, or residence rate does not guarantee placement in such.

Your residence assignment information will be sent to you via e-mail one week prior to your move-in date.

Each room contains a dresser, a desk, a bed frame, a mattress, and a chair for each student; a closet or wardrobe; and window shades, curtains, or mini blinds. Bed mattresses are 80 inches in length so ‘extra-long’ sheets are needed. Pillows, sheets, blankets, and towels are not provided for students but can be purchased at the on-campus bookstore along with other items such as metal wastepaper baskets, telephones, desk lamps, hangers, small fans, and alarm clocks.

Most residences are not air conditioned. One residence (575 Commonwealth Avenue) has a limited number of air conditioned double-occupancy rooms available. Students are prohibited from bringing air conditioners into any residence. You may request an air conditioned room by writing your request on your Residence License Agreement before you return it to BU Housing. Again, air conditioned double-occupancy rooms are limited, and you are not guaranteed an air conditioned room if you request one. Single-occupancy air conditioned rooms are not available.

Each room has individual telephone lines and Ethernet ports for direct access to the campus network. Students must purchase their own telephone and pay for telephone service. During registration, CELOP offers a workshop on setting up telephone service.

Smoking is prohibited in University student residences.

Guests are allowed only with the approval, in advance, of your residence office and roommates.

A Boston University staff member (Resident Assistant or ‘RA’) is assigned to work with students in each of the on-campus residences, and assist them with questions and problems. When the residence office is closed, there is an RA on duty to respond to concerns and emergencies.
