Boston University Housing
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!
