Here are the 5 best dorms at Boston University. This ranking was put together based off of what students rated BU dorms on the RateMyDorm BU Page.

    Riverway House (162 Riverway) Boston University

    Rated 4.4 / 5 stars by 4 BU students

    "One of the cleanest and most modern dorms on campus. Building is really nice. No communal bathrooms and AC in each room. Fenway dining hall is really good. Get ready for a 15 minute walk to class though. The Fenway bus is spotty."

    Myles Standish Hall Boston University

    Rated 4.4 / 5 stars by 32 BU students

    "This is one of the most spacious dorms eve at BU! What used to be the oldest dorm on campus, was finally remodeled and has a brand new hotel feeling while not compromising the size of the rooms! It now has communal downstairs kitchen, and is very close walk to Questrom School of Business! Not to mention, Babe Ruth stayed at Myles Hotel back when he played for the Red Sox!"

    StuVi1 (10 Buick St) Boston University

    Rated 4.5 / 5 stars by 18 BU students

    "Pros: large living rooms, single bedrooms, split bathroom with only one other roommate, and full kitchens. Cons: not all apartments are the same (some have smaller kitchens/living rooms), maintenance is not always on top of things (had to wait weeks to get oven replaced), building layout and study spaces are very nice but could use small renovations to keep it up to date (for the price it ought to be pristine). Location can be good or bad depending on the resident's situation."

    "Stuvi 2, as they call it, is. a dream!! If you are lucky enough to live in the apartments, you will love it (only Juniors and Seniors allowed, but underclassmen can live in the dorm-style apartments in the same building). The easiest way to secure a spot is to know someone who already lives there and can pull you in. The location is okay, it's perfect for athletes but if you want to get to class in east campus, you'll have to take the shuttle (which can get really packed) or walk about 20 minutes across campus. The rooms themselves are amazing and have a great view."

    Rated 4.8 / 5 stars by 1 BU student

    "Love it. More modern compared to a lot of the old buildings in Boston. Fairly clean and pretty quiet. Really enjoyed living here. I will miss it. Only annoying thing was the constant fire alarms but whatever."
