Who we are and what we do:

Off-Campus Services maintains updated listings of available apartments and sublets in the greater Boston area. The service is free of charge to all Boston University students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Whether you are affiliated with the Charles River Campus or BU’s Medical Campus, you are welcome to browse our listing of off-campus property or advertise your own apartment for rent. In addition to postings, you will find information about tenant rights and responsibilities, neighborhood descriptions, definitions of common rental terms, considerations before signing a lease, and other resources to help with your housing search. We are here to assist so please do not hesitate to contact us if you need advice about living off campus.

Note: Boston University does not own, inspect, endorse, or recommend any specific unit listed with this service.
