Utilities

The utilities provided vary from building to building. In most cases heat and hot water are included in the rent.  Please note that the majority of our apartments are wired for cable and internet.  Before signing any lease, be sure to inquire what utilities are included in the rent, and which are the tenant’s responsibility.

Please note that BU Wi-Fi is not available in all of our buildings. Please see the Boston University Information Systems and Technology coverage map.

It is your responsibility to contact the necessary utility companies to arrange for service prior to your lease start date. It is also your responsibility to terminate your utilities prior to vacating the apartment. Please note again that the utilities that you are responsible for vary by building. If you have any questions regarding what utilities you need to set-up and pay, please contact us at (617) 353-4101 or at rental@bu.edu.
