Living on Campus

We of the Boston University residence community, seek a simple goal: to provide a clean, safe, and quiet environment where civility and respect for others are the norms.  We accomplish this with the active involvement of students along with the support and guidance of qualified and dedicated staff.

In the residences, the dining areas, and in your classrooms, you will experience the spirit of the Boston University community. What can you add or gain? Your individual style, a thirst for knowledge, and a commitment to assisting others will make you a part of the community.

Students come to our campus from diverse backgrounds and social experiences. To help meet students’ needs and expectations, we offer a variety of on-campus living environments. A University residence, whether large or small, is a home and offers the resources essential to college life. Living on campus provides easy access to classes, study groups, the library, and campus activities, as well as places to congregate, speculate, and debate about your concerns and ideas about yesterday, today, and tomorrow. That’s why we say living on campus is a key to a fulfilling campus life.
