Furnishings

All furnishings contained within an apartment, suite or room need to remain in the unit. This applies in all cases, including rooms and apartments that contain furniture for more than the number of students currently assigned there. BU Housing is the only office on campus authorized to remove or move furniture from or in any on-campus residence.

Maintenance Concerns

If you discover a maintenance concern during your move-in, please contact your summer residence office and speak with a member of the Residence Life staff.

At all other times, please contact your RA or the RA on-call, or your summer residence office which is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and daily from 7 p.m. to midnight.

After you move out, BU Housing and Facilities Management & Planning will inspect your residence for damage(s) and, if found, assess you the appropriate charge(s).

Lockouts, Lost Keys, and Lock Changes

During normal business hours, you should contact your summer residence hall office to report  lockouts and lost or stolen keys. Outside of business hours, contact the Resident Assistant (RA) on call. There is a fee for a lock change and replacement keys.

Safety Tips

Please remember to:

  • keep your room/apartment locked at all times and carry your key(s) with you
  • identify positively through the door peephole or through verbal response anyone who asks to come in
  • do not allow anyone into your residence who is not your guest
  • contact the BU Police Department (617-353-2121) if you see anyone who looks suspicious in your residence
  • report immediately any exit door that is broken
  • close any door you find propped open
  • exercise caution; avoid walking alone at night; find someone to walk with you
  • carry your Terrier Card with you at all times
