Residence life

Residence is far, far more than just a room or suite on campus. It’s where the founding of your Bishop’s family starts, and where your Bishop’s Experience truly begins.

Our primary goal is to maintain the health and safety of our community. The BU Residence team is making every effort to keep our community safe and respect Public Health Guidelines in operating our residence community. We will continue offering engaging and supportive programming and services to all our residents!

Read more on the COVID-19 Residence Protocol web page.

Choosing to live in residence means involving yourself in a community of people who are similar in age, who share your interests, and who are all at about the same stage in their lives. It’s about making new friends, being part of a community, and adjusting to life on your own.

The crazy mix of late-night conversations, movie nights and study marathons that results from residence life is a mysterious, but tried-and-true, recipe for lasting friendships. So get yourself a roommate or bogmate … you’ll be telling the stories for the rest of your life!
