Arriving on Campus

Boston University is located in the heart of Boston, and is easily accessible by public transportation or car. Boston’s subway and bus system, known as the “T,” provides service to the BU campus via the Green Line “B” train. The main BU stops are BU East, BU Central, and BU West. Directions to campus can be found here.

Here is a list of items to take care of as soon as you arrive on campus.


Student Health Services

Boston University Student Health Services, located at 881 Commonwealth Avenue, is available for urgent care issues by appointment Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm (opens 10 am on Thursdays). There is a co-pay fee of $25 charged to the student’s account. If you receive blood work or immunizations, you will need to provide your insurance information or have charges billed to your student account.

If you have a non-urgent issue that requires routine care, Student Health will work with you to provide a referral based on your insurance. If you experience a medical emergency or crisis on weekdays after closing hours or on weekends, you may call 617-353-3575 and follow the prompts to be connected with the appropriate healthcare provider or you may go to the closest urgent care center or emergency department.

Any student who experiences a sexual assault or a crisis should first call the SARP at 617-353-SARP (7277) to speak with a counselor.

We are here to make your summer study experience a pleasant and rewarding one. If you have any questions about arriving on campus or the Summer Study Internship Program—please be sure to contact us.
