Housing

We understand that finding housing and roommates is a key step if you are relocating for graduate school. To assist in this process, our office conducts a housing and roommate survey in late spring each year and distributes the results to everyone who opts in. This can help you team up with other grad students to seek housing. Please look for that email to arrive in your inbox this spring with more information.

In addition, the following resources are available:

Off-Campus Housing:  For information on off-campus housing such as apartment listings, information about tenant rights and responsibilities, neighborhood descriptions, definitions of common rental terms, considerations before signing a lease, and other resources to help with your housing search, please visit http://www.bu.edu/offcampus/.

University-Owned Apartments and Graduate Housing: BU Real Estate leases, manages and maintains residential apartments, a limited number of parking spaces, and commercial property owned by Boston University. Residential apartments are leased to full-time Boston University graduate students, faculty and staff only.
