Accommodations – Stay With Us
Here’s a great way to get more out of your Orientation visit and your travel dollar, too. We’re inviting the families of BU students to stay with us on campus at special low rates – in the most ideally located and least expensive accommodations in Boston. You can also extend your visit right through the weekend if you like.
Check into our newest, most convenient residences.
They are a dorm, all right, but nothing like the dorms you remember from your own college days. The 33 Harry Agganis Way and 10 Buick Street residences are modern, air conditioned, high-rise buildings with terrific views of Boston. Perfect places to get a taste of student living! Best of all, your Orientation activities are steps away, including the Thursday night Meet Up for parents hosted by the Parents Program in the 26th floor lounge of 33 Harry Agganis Way.
But that’s not the only convenience. Next door, you can work out in BU’s fabulous Fitness & Recreation Center. As an added incentive, we’ve waived the FitRec’s normal day rate to give parents and siblings free access during your Orientation stay. (Siblings under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.)
By staying on campus through the weekend, you’ll have time to experience campus life like your BU student and enjoy the best of Boston. The front desk staff will be happy to provide information when you’re ready to explore the University and the city.
Comfortable rooms. Great rates. Even free parking.
We guarantee you won’t find that combination anywhere else in Boston. Campus housing is available for immediate family members from Tuesday through Sunday for Sessions 1 to 7. Family members attending on their own (only one parent attending) will be assigned to a private bedroom in a suite shared with other adult Orientation attendees of the same gender.
Families of two, a couple or a parent and a sibling, will either be assigned to their own suite or share a suite with another family of two. In this situation, each family of two will have a private bedroom and their own bathroom.
Families of three or more will be assigned to their own suite. At least one person per family must participate in Parent Orientation in order to qualify for campus housing. Single occupancy is $67 per person per night, Family groups of two or more is $144 per family group per night (max room capacity of 8 people).
Beds come made with linen and bath towels, and basic amenities. Suites in 10 Buick Street and 33 Agganis Way include TVs, irons, iron boards, and a complete new bedding package (pillows, blankets, comforters, and pillow-top mattress pads). Other conveniences? You’ll find vending machines and laundry machines in the residences. And the Buick Street Market & Café, including a Dunkin Donuts, is located in the 10 Buick Street residence. In addition, there is 24-hour coffee/tea service and a water bottle filling station in the lobby of 10 Buick Street and a water bottle filling station in the lobby of 33 Agganis Way.
Once your student has paid the enrollment deposit, he/she will be eligible to register on May 1, 2016.
Whatever you do, enjoy your stay at Boston University.
IMPORTANT: Incoming students are required to stay in Rich Hall during the Thursday night of Orientation sessions 1-7. Students are not allowed to stay with any parents/family guests staying in 33 Harry Agganis Way at any point during their visit. Students are required to stay with other students as a part of the University Orientation experience. Students must purchase their own extra-night stays during the registration process.
