The Study Abroad staff is currently working remotely and happy to connect with you virtually during our regular business hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m, Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. We encourage students to email their application materials to abroad@bu.edu rather than mailing paper documents to our office. When you call our telephone number, you will be prompted to leave us a message; we are frequently monitoring this voicemail box during business hours and will get back to you as soon as possible. If you would like to connect with a member of our staff, please visit our Advising Options page for more information and to make an appointment.
