Boston University On-Campus Housing

Warren Towers

We offer traditional-style, non-air-conditioned dormitory accommodations on campus during Commencement weekend. Located conveniently at 700 Commonwealth Avenue, Warren Towers is a great home base for your celebratory activities.

Please note that traditional dormitory-style living includes community bathrooms, with showers, that are shared by the guests of each floor. There are no in-room private bathrooms or amenities like televisions, hair dryers or irons.

Due to the large number of students that will be staying in the Student Village through Commencement weekend, there is insufficient availability to offer guest accommodations in those residence halls.

We will begin taking reservations on January 20, 2016 at 12 noon.


Rooms are available 3 p.m., Thursday, May 14 – 10 a.m., Monday, May 18. (Sunday check-in is not available. Luggage Storage on May 18 is not available.) Reservations must be made by Friday, April 24 at 5pm.

*Cancellations must be received by 5 p.m. on April 24 for a full refund. Refunds will not be issued after April 24.

Please remember that this is dormitory-style living: bathrooms with showers are available on each floor. There are no in-room bathrooms or televisions.

  • Double: $110 per night

A child 12 or under who does not require his/her own bed may stay in your room at no additional cost. Sleeping bags are suggested. Additional pillows, linens, and towels will not be provided.
