Back To BU

Return to class.
To the lab. To life on campus.

Like many colleges and universities, Boston University has faced unprecedented challenges to campus life because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But thanks to the excellence of our faculty and researchers and extraordinary cooperation from the entire BU community, we’ve been able to put in place comprehensive health and safety protocols. That includes our own clinical testing lab, a dedicated healthcare team, a robust contact-tracing program, and mandatory vaccination.

As we move forward together, we will continue to make compassionate, respectful decisions in consultation with public health authorities, epidemiologists, and other experts at BU and around the world. Our commitment to delivering an outstanding and healthy residential educational experience for our community has never been stronger. Please check back here regularly for the latest information and updates.

Screening, Testing
& Contact Tracing

As part of our effort to protect the community and safely conduct residential teaching, learning, and research activities, we operate our own clinical testing lab, which can test at large volumes and return results rapidly. We’re also rigorous when it comes to screening and contact tracing, and are ready with comfortable rooms for those who may need to quarantine or isolate.
