Arriving on Campus
We are excited you have chosen Boston University for your summer studies! Boston University is located in the heart of Boston, and is easily accessible by public transportation or car. The city’s subway, known as the “T,” provides service to the BU campus via the Green Line (B branch) train. The main BU stops on the subway are Blandford Street, BU East, BU Central, and Amory Street. You can also access campus via public bus or BU shuttle service. Directions to campus can be found here.
