Back to Housing Registration

Boston University provides many on-campus amenities for our Overnight Conference and Commencement guests. Whether you’re looking for a quick meal, a great workout, or just excellent wi-fi, we’ve got you covered.

Summer Conference Guests

Due to Boston University’s urban setting, street parking is limited. We encourage visitors to take public transportation as much as possible. Should your travel needs require parking, select university lots are available for daily or overnight guest parking. Please refer to your program’s housing packages for more information about parking availability and rates.

Our robust wireless network will keep you connected regardless of where you are on campus. As a guest of a conference or program, you will have full access to the network on your computer, phone, and other wireless devices. Refer to this guide on how to connect to the network, or ask a Front Desk Attendant at any time for assistance.

While you are at BU this summer, your work-out routine doesn’t need to fall behind! In fact, you can take it up a notch at FitRec.

Beat the heat indoor at Boston University’s phenomenal Fitness and Recreation Center. Facilities such as 18,000 square feet of the latest cardio and strength equipment, an indoor jogging track, two world-class swimming pools, squash and racquetball courts, and a climbing wall give you the best workout in Boston just steps away from where you will be staying. Summer guest passes available for day use, as well as one, two, three, four, six, eight and twelve week increments.

Registration is easy. Simply stop by FitRec Member Services at 915 Commonwealth Ave when you arrive. Check out the FitRec website for pricing and details. Take the FitRec Tour.
