Living on campus is the best way to become involved at Boston University, to make new friends, to be challenged in your academic pursuits and to share your ideas and further your goals.
There are ten dormitory-style residences, each accommodating a large number of students. These range from Danielsen Hall with 280 students, to the West Campus area with over 1,800 students. Most residences are coeducational. In most cases, men and women are housed in separate sections of the same floor with separate bath facilities or on separate floors within the residence.
The large dormitory-style residences have around-the-clock security staff at the front entrance to monitor building access.
A variety of services and resources are available in the larger dormitory-style residences. Each residence is unique, and all provide students with endless opportunities for involvement in campus activities.
