Family On-Campus Accommodations
We’re inviting the family 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 extend your visit right through the weekend if you like.
Check into our newest, most convenient residence.
Guest of students will be housed in the Student Residences at 33 Harry Agganis Way and 10 Buick Street. Both buildings are modern, air-conditioned, high-rise residences with terrific views of the City of Boston. It is the perfect place to get a taste of student living. Best of all, your Orientation activities are just steps away, including the Thursday night jazz reception for parents 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. Fees have been waived 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. Free parking.
On-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. Single occupancy is $63 per person per night.
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 based on availability during that session. In this situation, each family of two will have a private bedroom and their own bathroom. We will contact you before your Orientation session to confirm with you. Family occupancy is $126 per family per night.
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. Family occupancy is $126 per family per night.
Included in your rate are bed and bath linens, basic amenities and no-charge parking throughout your stay. You’ll find vending machines and laundry machines in the residences. The Buick Street Market & Café, including a Dunkin Donuts, is located in the 10 Buick Street residence.
Once your student has paid the enrollment deposit, he/she will be eligible to register on May 2, 2014.
*IMPORTANT: Incoming students are not allowed to stay with any parents/family guests staying in Residences at 33 Harry Agganis Way and 10 Buick Street (Sessions 1-7) at any point during their visit. Students are required to stay with other students during University Orientation. Students must purchase their own extra-night stays during the registration process. We appreciate your help with this in giving your students the best University Orientation experience possible.
