Fall 2015

Whether you are a new student moving in for the first time or a returning student back for your senior year, we welcome you to campus!

During the summer you may view your residence assignment information on the Student Link. To access your information, click on “Food and Shelter,” then click on “Residence Assignment.” Enter your BU login name and Kerberos password to view your assignment.

If you are a new student and have not yet been assigned to a residence, visit the Residence Assignment page on the Student Link periodically. When your residence assignment is made, your information will be updated. We will continue to assign new entering students through the months of July and August.

You may check in to your residence according to the following schedule:
