High School Honors: Housing & Dining

Residential students

You and your fellow high school students will live together as a community in a BU residence hall. There are typically two students per room, although some students may also be in singles or triples. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss housing arrangements, as our office is committed to creating a safe and welcoming community for all of our students.

Residence halls have 24 hour security and full time residential staff. Carefully selected program assistants (PAs) also live in the residences and provide students with guidance as they adapt to college life. The PAs coordinate social outings and ensure that students return to the residence before curfew each night.

Our residence halls are not air-conditioned and dorm rooms can get hot, so we strongly recommend that you bring a fan or buy one when you arrive on campus.

You will eat your meals in one of our dining halls on campus. The menu choices include restaurant-style meals, vegetarian and vegan options, freshly made desserts, and so much more. If you have special dietary requirements, please contact us so we can make arrangements to best accommodate you. The dining staff can also assist you if you have food allergies or other dietary restrictions.

Commuter students

Because dorm life is an important aspect of the college experience and helps you form closer bonds with other students, we encourage you to live on campus. However, students in the High School Honors program do have the option of commuting to campus each day.

If you choose to commute, you remain responsible for the Service Fees ($470), and we expect your participation in planned program activities. You will also be able to put Convenience Points on your student ID to purchase food at the George Sherman Union or to buy meals in a dining hall so you can eat with your friends.

All commuter students are required to fill out a supplemental Commuter Permission Form upon acceptance into one of our programs. This form can be found in the online enrollment portal. Please note that students who choose to commute must be staying with a family member.
