The Boston University Office of the Provost Graduate Affairs office provides resources and information relevant for the Boston University graduate student population, including scholarship award opportunities.

Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs

The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs published an overview of diversity focusing on the Boston University Medical Campus, which provides information of its mission and initiatives.


Students are required to have a mode of transportation in order to access clinical training sites both within and outside of the Boston area.  A car is not required per se, and we encourage students to explore the many alternate transportation options.

The Boston University Shuttle (the BUS) connects the Charles River and Medical Campuses, which offers students quick access to additional campus resources and works as a free and convenient transportation option for students who choose to live off-campus in areas such as Brookline, Allston, or Brighton.  The BUS is easily tracked using the BU Mobile app.

The Office of Parking and Transportation Services is a useful campus resource for employees, students, and visitors.  Here you will find information about shuttle services, public transportation passes, and parking permits.

Boston is easily accessible by public transportation.  Please visit the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) website for maps and schedules for the bus, subway, and commuter rail.

Zipcar offers discounted membership for Boston University affiliates.

Boston University Bookstore

The Barnes and Noble at Boston University Bookstore is located in Kenmore Square, near the Boston University Charles River Campus.

Public Safety
