Back To BU

Forward together.
In the classroom. In the lab. Around campus.

Like many colleges and universities, Boston University continues to navigate challenges to campus life because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. When the virus first appeared in early 2020, we were able to quickly put in place comprehensive health and safety protocols, thanks to the excellence of our faculty and researchers and extraordinary cooperation from the entire BU community. That included our own clinical testing lab, a dedicated healthcare team, and later, immunization clinics and mandatory vaccination and booster shots.

As we move forward together against a backdrop of variant surges, we continue to assess and adjust our protocols and will always 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 remains stronger than ever. Please check back here regularly for the latest information and updates.

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 contact tracing and are ready with comfortable rooms for students who may need to isolate.
