The South Campus of BU is right next to the famed home of the Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park. Apartments near Boston University in the Fenway neighborhood offer some of the most affordable options for students. The other end of the Boston University campus located in Allston is also a popular student zip code thanks to its affordability, location, diversity, and many restaurants and bars catering to the college audience.

Restaurants near Boston University in the Fenway neighborhood include pubs and fast-casual dining establishments. Trendy cafés and a wide range of cuisine from all around the world can be found in Allston. For more upscale dining options, the highly desirable Back Bay neighborhood is a good bet.

As for entertainment, you can enjoy a concert or hockey game at the Agganis Arena in Brighton right next door to Allston, or pop down to Paradise Rock Club for some live music. For students or young professionals looking for low-budget activities, a walk, run, or bike ride along the Charles River Esplanade is always beautiful, as is the “Emerald Necklace” of parks that include the Back Bay Fens.

In addition to being located in highly walkable as well as relatively bikeable areas, apartments near Boston University provide easy access to public transportation, with an entire branch of the T’s Green Line cutting straight through campus in addition to many MBTA bus stops.

Those looking for parking near Boston University can apply for one of the city’s resident parking passes to park on the many side streets nearby. Note that Boston University students living off-campus aren’t eligible for one of BU’s own overnight parking passes, and some off-campus housing near West Campus in Brookline doesn’t allow overnight street parking. In other words, if you’re living off-campus in some parts of town, you may want to find an apartment that comes with its own parking spot.
