The following information is a step-by-step preparation for completing your housing agreement. It explains how to choose a meal plan, how to choose a roommate, and how to list preferences for housing options. Please read it carefully before completing your housing agreement.
ApplyOnline is your online housing and/or dining plan contract agreement.
During your designated dates/times when you want to sign up for housing/dining or when you want to sign up for a dining plan only as an off-campus or commuter student.
New Students will be sent information via their BU email as to when they can complete ApplyOnline and MyHousing.Only students who currently live on campus can sign up for Fall/Spring housing during the H.O.S.T. process.
MyHousing is where you will answer your Personal Preference Questions, select a roommate and manage your on-campus housing and dining plans.
H.O.S.T. stands for Housing Option Selection Time and is the process during which current on-campus students will select their housing and/or dining for the next academic year.
To be eligible for Fall housing as a current student, you need to complete ApplyOnline and MyHousing for Fall between December 1st and January 31st. If you complete ApplyOnline for Fall and sign up for housing but do not live on campus for any reason, you will be billed.
Current Students During the H.O.S.T. schedule timeframe send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the hall and room of your choice. All three must have completed ApplyOnline and MyHousing (roommate requests, personal preferences and dining plan). Students who choose to voluntarily triple will not be offered an opportunity to detriple and will not receive a triple credit.
New Students Request roommates in MyHousing and email email@example.com to request to voluntarily triple for Fall. Students who choose to voluntarily triple will not be offered an opportunity to detriple and will each receive the full triple credit for the Fall semester only. If we have space available during the Spring semester, we will offer your room a chance to detriple. The triple credit will end at that time whether you accept or decline the offer to detriple.
