Transfer students

Transfer students are encouraged to live on campus in order to be fully engaged in the BU experience. BU guarantees housing for transfer students for the duration of their undergraduate studies provided they complete the New Student Housing Application by the Enrollment Deposit Deadline and they remain within the residence system. The on-campus residences provide safe and supportive learning communities near classrooms, libraries, recreational facilities and dining locations. There are a wide variety of accommodations within the BU residence system from historic brownstones on Bay State Road, to modern high-rises, to private apartments in the adjacent neighborhoods. On campus housing for transfer students is not required but strongly recommended.

To secure housing for the 2017-18 Academic Year, in-coming transfer students must complete the New Student Application by Saturday, July 1.  After this date, students may inquire about housing availability; however, on-campus housing will no longer be guaranteed.
