BUOffCampus is the only apartment search platform designed by BU students, for BU students. We've been in your shoes before and know that searching for the perfect off campus apartment at BU can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve spent the last several years researching and experiencing life off campus. Our goal is to inform interested students on the best places to live off campus, and our wisdom becomes our advice.
Even with all of this knowledge, experience, and eagerness to help you make the move off campus, we still are not licensed real estate agents. That’s why we decided to partner with a few of the best realtors in Boston. We vetted every realtor to make sure they shared the same passion and knowledge that we do when it comes to off campus living at BU. This means you won’t get stuck with the uninformed, inexperienced and unreliable realtor that may be waiting for you on Zillow.

Home to over 20 delis, 75 parks, playgrounds, and some of the best shopping in the Boston area, Brookline apartments have been sought after by BU students (and professors) for decades.
