Housing Resources

Welcome! Housing Resources is here to help Boston University Medical Campus students find a place to live in the Boston and surrounding areas.  We are here to walk you through the entire housing search process — from picking a neighborhood to finding a roommate to signing a lease.  Even after you find a place to live, we can help you with any issues you may have getting settled in Boston or working through any roommate or landlord conflicts.

Mission Statement:

Housing Resources mission is to educate, advise and assist students on the practices and policies of renting an apartment, on issues as they relate to roommates and landlords and on their rights and responsibilities as tenants. This mission is realized through excellence in service, resources, presentations and individual consultations.

Connect to Boston University Off-Campus Services for apartments and roommates – to search or list.
