Getting to Know Campus

Part of being a Boston University employee is taking advantage of everything the University and Boston have to offer—culture, athletics, food, academics, and more. We are an urban university, so we have the benefit of being part of two “campuses”—our own and the City of Boston.

BU’s Charles River and Medical Campuses span the Kenmore/Fenway, Allston, and South End neighborhoods of Boston and offer many resources for you to explore and use. Following are tips on navigating our area.

Campus Map

Use Boston University’s interactive campus map to navigate your way around both campuses.
