Campus Reopening

Back 2 BU
While fall 2020 marks the beginning of a new era of academic life, BU’s overarching goal is to make sure our community members feel comfortable, and safe, returning to campus and resuming daily activities. Back 2 BU provides information on the university’s plan to reopen.

Visit Boston

The Museum of Fine Arts, the Public Garden, the Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, Faneuil Hall Marketplace—these are among the great Boston landmarks that attract tourists the world over. But as a student of hospitality administration, you’ll experience this diverse, cosmopolitan city differently, from the inside out. The School’s extensive network with the greater Boston hospitality industry allows our students enviable access to the people behind some of the great restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality-related businesses that make this city move.

For a taste of what the city has to offer, the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau’s website is a great place to start.
