Do you need to make a quick trip to Boston? For students and parents who need a place to stay for a few days or a week or two, guest houses and hotels can be a good option for comfortable accommodations. Many hotels across the city have special Boston University discounts, and hotels close to the Boston University Medical Campus have a special medical campus rate.
Students who intend to stay in Boston for a few weeks up to a couple of months may want to look at the short-term rental suggestions offered here and research the websites. Most short-term rentals offer furnished studio or one-bedroom apartments. Many guest houses may offer a rental on a month-to-month basis.
If you are looking for housing during a rotation or elective, or a short-term sublet, you should consider the options offered here as well as research the short-term sublets on student specific websites.
