Summer Residence & Dining Rates

This year, enjoy summer in the city with all the conveniences of living in BU Housing. We offer a variety of room types and locations that take the hassle out of looking for housing while you’re taking summer classes or working over the summer—or both!

Your housing options are available in 6-week blocks that align with the summer academic calendar. Stay with us for either a 6-week Summer Session (1 or 2) or for the full 12-week (Summer 1 and 2). Rates listed below are per person, for 6-week and 12-week sessions. If you are enrolled in a Summer Term program longer or shorter than six weeks, you will be charged a rate determined by BU Housing.

You have the flexibility to cancel the Residence License Agreement until the specified deadline, or if you officially terminate your student status with the University as outlined in the Terms and Conditions of the Summer Residence License Agreement. If you miss the cancellation deadline, you are responsible for residence and, if applicable, dining plan rates for the entire period for which your Residence License Agreement is signed.

Please remember that your student account needs to be settled prior to the first day of each summer session.
