Renting an apartment doesn’t need to be confusing. The Boston University Real Estate office has simplified the process to make finding and renting an apartment easy.

Step 1 Contact us to schedule an appointment to view available apartments from our wide variety of apartment styles, sizes, and locations throughout the Charles River Campus.

Step 2 When you arrive at our office — located at 846 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215 on the Charles River Campus, we will show you available apartments that meet your specific requirements. We won’t waste your time showing you apartments that don’t meet your needs.

Step 3 After looking at available units, you select the apartment that best suits your needs. We suggest that you act quickly when making your selection because available apartments tend to rent quickly, particularly during the busy summer rental season, and between semesters.

(Please Note: All faculty and staff rentals are subject to approval by the Office of the Provost.)

Step 4 The day your rental agreement starts, visit our office and pay the first month’s rent, sign your lease, pick up your keys, and move in.

It’s as simple as that!

Unlike most area realtors and landlords, Boston University does not require that you pay a broker’s fee or the last month’s rent in advance. We believe that renting your new apartment should be as easy and stress-free as possible.
