How to apply

The information below is for the completed Summer 2016 term. Information about Summer 2017 will be available in mid-December.

On-campus housing is available during Summer 2016 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 2016 are granted for both summer sessions or for separate summer sessions.

If you wish to reserve on-campus housing, you should return your Summer 2016 Application by:

  • Friday, April 22, 2016 for Summer Session 1 or both summer sessions, or
  • Friday, June 10, 2016 for Summer Session 2

If you are enrolled in a Boston University Summer Term course with dates that are different than Summer Session 1 (Monday, May 23–Friday, July 1, 2016) or Summer Session 2 (Tuesday, July 5 –Friday, August 12, 2016), 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.
