Housing & Health Services
BUSTI students live in standard double occupancy rooms in Boston University residence halls, which have separate towers for male and female students. Genderqueer, transgender, and/or nonbinary students are encouraged to contact us to discuss the housing option that will make them the most comfortable.
All BUSTI students live together on floors in the residence halls exclusive to BUSTI. BUSTI students are housed in Warren Towers, the largest dorm on BU Campus.
Security guards supervise the dorms 24/7. After curfew, a combination of BUSTI Teaching Assistants and Boston University Resident Assistants staff BUSTI floors. TA’s live on each floor and RA’s live on every other floor. Residence hall curfews are strictly enforced to protect each students safety:
CURFEW: Sunday-Friday, 11:00 p.m; Saturday, Midnight
BUSTI is not a camp, but a pre-college program in a professional training environment. To ensure that all students have a safe and productive experience, BUSTI requires students to follow rules governing student conduct and campus life as outlined in the BUSTI Handbook, Residence License Agreement, and Lifebook. BUSTI’s aim is not to produce an unreasonably strict living climate on campus, but to promote safety and consideration through community living.
Student Health Services
On campus, Student Health Services provides a Medical Clinic and a Mental Health Clinic. Several physicians and registered nurses are on campus for regularly-scheduled office hours between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Services within the Student Health clinics will be provided to Summer Theatre Institute students for a co-pay of $25 per visit. This fee is not an insurance premium; it will cover services rendered at Student Health Services only. All medical costs incurred outside the clinic (including, but not limited to, ambulance charges, pharmacy costs, hospital emergency room visits, x-rays, laboratory tests, etc.) are the responsibility of the parent.
