Boston University Housing

First and most importantly, if you are staying in student housing at Boston University, do not get off the green line at Boston Univeristy West! Yes, the residence hall is on the west end of campus. No, that's not the right stop. You want the third stop after Boston University West -- Babcock.

The next thing you need to know is that the residence hall is hiding from you. It's that big unmarked building right on the corner of Commonwealth and Babcock. And just to make your life more difficult, the entrance isn't actually on Commonwealth. It's on Babcock.

I truly hope you don't suffer through the agony of lugging your bags all around town searching for this place like I did.

(Okay, so it wasn't that bad. But the walk from U West, where I got off the green, to the residence hall -- it's not fun. Especially if you're carrying your bags with you. Thank goodness I packed light.)

And finally to the most important thing on all of our minds: food. Boston University has this awesome page that will tell you exactly what restaurants are open in the area right now. It includes reviews, menus, addresses, and regular business hours. This is brilliant. Check it out if you have a bad case of late-night munchies or are in desperate need of dinner:

And leave a comment if you find a restaurant that's just out of this world, because I'm hungry!

If you are arriving on the B line from the airport then keep an eye out for a McDonalds to your RIGHT and get off at the next station.


I actually logged in to post this exact same thing. I had a hard time figuring out where the dorm was, and I did get off at the east station :( not a nice experience in the middle of a hot and humid day.
