Housing

Students coming to Boston have several options for housing.

Finding housing in Boston can be a challenge, but it’s certainly not impossible. Most graduate students tend to live close to BU in Allston, Brighton, or Brookline. In Brookline there is no overnight street parking, so if you have a car you would need to rent a parking place or find a place that includes parking. Craigslist is a great place to start for community housing. Visit the GRS Finding Housing page for more information.

Students who take the MBTA, “the T,” tend to live along the B, C, and D lines. These all go to Kenmore Square which is very close to Boston University and the Department of Biology. Further details can be found on the MBTA website.

Students who live in Allston/Brighton center take the #57 bus, which runs directly through the middle of Boston University on Commonwealth Avenue.
