How to apply

The 2017 Summer Housing Application is now available. You can complete your application by visiting the My Housing Portal at and logging in with your BU login and Kerberos password. From there, click the Applications link on the home page and you will find the Summer Session 2017 application.

On-campus housing is available during Summer 2017 to full-time matriculating Boston University students, students registered for Boston University Summer Term courses, and students enrolled in a Boston University recognized special summer program. Residence License Agreements for Summer 2017 are granted for both summer sessions or for separate summer sessions.

If you wish to reserve on-campus housing, you should complete your Summer 2017 Application by:

  • Friday, April 21, 2017 for Summer Session 1 or both summer sessions, or
  • Friday, June 9, 2017 for Summer Session 2

If you are enrolled in a Boston University Summer Term course with dates that are different than Summer Session 1 (Tuesday, May 23–Friday, June 30, 2017) or Summer Session 2 (Monday, July 3 –Friday, August 11, 2017), you must contact the Summer Housing Manager at and request the appropriate summer housing materials.

You are welcome to submit your housing materials and your housing guarantee payment after the above deadlines; however, it is important to note that residence assignments will be made in date received order on a space-available basis.

We also offer summer housing for non-Boston University students working as interns in the Boston area for the summer.  For more information, complete the inquiry form on our Summer Internship Housing page.
