Campus Life

Boston University’s campus extends over 131 acres from Boston’s Back Bay district along the banks of the Charles River—and there’s plenty to explore.

From University residence halls to the eclectic neighborhoods surrounding campus, memorable social and cultural experiences abound. Restaurants, art galleries, bookstores, music venues, and shopping can be found along Commonwealth Avenue, while the Charles River Esplanade provides miles of running, walking, and biking trails. Peaceful parks and plazas abound on campus, offering countless spots to gather, read, do homework, or simply relax.

We invite you to explore the resources available to you at Boston University.
