The Education House
The Education House at Boston University is a coeducational housing option available to undergraduate students studying within the School of Education.
Since its founding in the fall of 1990, The Education House has been home to hundreds of undergraduate students from Boston University’s School of Education. The house itself is a traditional “brownstone” style residence located on scenic Bay State Road in Boston’s historical Back Bay neighborhood. Residents will find the house equipped with a built in washer and dryer, a comfortable common room located on the first floor, and even a piano.
Generally, however, students choose to live in The Education House not for its amenities, but for its comforting and diverse atmosphere. The house is currently home to 25 students ranging from seniors to freshmen and hailing from countries all over the world. Since the house is home to only education students, residents often times are able to receive homework help and study advice from other residents who have already taken the same classes.
The Education House remains committed to fostering a community within the School of Education as well as within Boston University as a whole.Each month residents participate in house events ranging from ice skating on the Boston Common, a trip to Salem around Halloween, and sharing in a community dinner to celebrate Thanksgiving. Additionally, students in the 2010-2011 academic year raised over $150 dollars to buy Christmas presents for a local Boston family.
