Housing

Depending on your program of study, you may be able to apply for on-campus housing at BU. The information below provides information about both on-campus and off-campus housing opportunities for MET International study abroad students.

MET International provides on-campus housing, based on availability; students typically live in double-occupancy dormitory-style rooms. Please note that there is limited housing available on campus, and that on-campus housing is not guaranteed. Undergraduate students interested in on-campus accommodations should check with their home institutions regarding availability.

Undergraduate students are also welcome to live off-campus, and should explore the “Resources for Off-Campus Housing”section below to learn more about those opportunities.

MET International does not provide on-campus housing to graduate students. However, because Boston University is conveniently located in the heart of Boston, numerous off-campus housing options are available in the neighborhoods surrounding campus. The subway (known locally as the “T”) and buses create a convenient urban network of travel throughout the inner and outer regions of the city. Explore the “Resources for Off-Campus Housing” section below to learn more about off-campus accommodation opportunities.

On-campus summer housing is available during both summer sessions for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in Summer Term courses.

Double-occupancy bedrooms and a limited number of single rooms are available in dormitory-style and apartment-style residences, which vary in size and design. To find out more information about they types of rooms available in the summer, visit the BU Housing website.
