Boston University's new high-rise dorm

September 4, 2009

Boston University's newest residence hall, named Student Village II, or Stu-V II, is a posh, 26-story high-rise with views of the entire city skyline. The common room on the 26th floor overlooks the Charles River.

The 960-bed dorm includes suites of singles and doubles, with elegantly furnished common rooms, large private baths, walk-in closets, and floor-length mirrors.

Other amenities include soundproof piano rooms that allow students to practice without disturbing those studying in the 24-hour reading room, which is outfitted with plush adjustable furniture.

The laundry room - with washers and dryers programmed to alert students via computer when they are available - overlooks the athletic field and stadium.

BU’s president, Robert Brown, says the upgrade is critical to the university’s goal of someday housing 85 percent of its undergraduates on campus.
