Myles Standish Hall, located at 610 Beacon Street, is a suite-style residence hall at the east end of campus in historic Kenmore Square. In 2018, Boston University completed a comprehensive multi-year renovation project on Myles Standish Hall. The newly renovated overnight accommodations are now available for adult summer conference groups.

Most suites are four-person suites, consisting of a mix of single and/or double occupancy bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Each floor has a small common area, and guests can also utilize small meeting rooms, laundry facilities, and vending machines within the residence hall.

Dining On Campus

All residential guests have the option to eat in campus residential dining halls. This service needs to be arranged by your group organizer in advance. In addition, many retail dining options are available to conference/residential guests.

Residential Dining
If you’re staying in one of our residences during the summer, you’re in for a treat. Our residential dining halls are available to all overnight conference guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (brunch and dinner on Sundays) with a rotating variety of choices at each meal. We take pride in serving delicious, healthy meals using sustainable and local food products. And our staff is happy to assist with special dietary requirements.

Retail Dining
Too rushed to get to a residential dining hall? We’ve still got your meals covered with a variety of on-campus retail options. To name a few: the George Sherman Union Food Hall, Buick Street Market & Cafe, Breadwinners at Questrom School of Business, and the School of Law Cafe.
