Worst dorms at BU?


Verified Student

Warren and Danielson. Warren, people like it because of its location but the dining hall at Warren is the worst one on campus and the dorm rooms are really small. Danielson is really far. People prioritize different things when putting down dorm preferences so make sure to prioritize the ones that match your living style!

Danielson just because of the location

Danielson. It's really far from campus and not the nicest dorm.

Danielson is the worst.

Most BU dorms are similar in quality minus the few new dorms. What makes a BU dorm bad is the location and vibe/your personal experience. Danielson might be an option since it's so far away

About BU Housing

BU dorms come in a few different styles: large traditional-style, small-traditional style, and apartment-style; then there is Student Village and Fenway campus. Most commonly, first-year students choose between Warren Towers and West Campus. They're best for first-years for the social aspect and the in-building dining hall. Second-years usually move on to brownstones or the other traditional-style dorms like Hojo or Myles Standish. Many upperclassmen stay in apartment style dorms or StuVi for the kitchen.
