WiFi / BU Guest Network

Our robust wireless network will keep you connected regardless of where you are on campus. As a guest of a conference or program, you will have full access to the network on your computer, phone, and other wireless devices. Refer to this guide on how to connect to the network, or ask a Front Desk Attendant at any time for assistance.


Due to Boston University’s urban setting, street parking is limited. We encourage visitors to take public transportation as much as possible. Should your travel needs require parking, select university lots are available for daily or overnight guest parking. Overnight parking is typically available at Lot B: Langsam Garage. If parking wasn’t pre-arranged as part of your program, you can self-pay at the garage. Didn’t come with a car? Check out the Getting Around page.

Facilities such as 18,000 square feet of the latest cardio and strength equipment, an indoor jogging track, two world-class swimming pools, squash and racquetball courts, and a climbing wall give you the best workout in Boston just steps away from where you will be staying. Summer guest passes are available for day use, as well as one, two, three, four, six, eight and twelve-week increments. Registration: Simply stop by FitRec Member Services at 915 Commonwealth Ave when you arrive.
