Dear Faculty, Students, Staff and Alumni:

I am pleased to announce that the Boston University Board of Trustees voted Thursday, September 16, 2010 to approve the building of a new student residence on BU Medical Campus to be located at 817 Albany Street. Construction will take an estimated 18 months. We hope to welcome the Class of 2016 into the new facility in the fall of 2012!

We are tentatively looking forward to celebrating groundbreaking on Friday, October 29th, when our Dean’s Advisory Board is meeting.

A cadre of generous faculty, parents, alumni and friends has helped make the start of construction possible. We will continue to raise funds because every dollar of support will reduce the rent for each student who lives there.

We are committed to maintaining access to a medical education by the most qualified students by controlling expenses for our students. This building comprises one very important component of this commitment.

Best regards,

Karen Antman, MD
Provost, Boston University Medical Campus
Dean, School of Medicine
Professor of Medicine
