In addition to books, BU Libraries provide limitless search tools, access to databases and global resources, research materials and tutorials, and specialty subject research guides developed in-house by librarian experts.

Most notably, the Union Court food court, located right next door from BUA and where most students and faculty eat, offers 11 different restaurants open before, during, and after school hours.
For upperclassmen enrolled in University classes in other areas of campus, there are 14 additional restaurants and cafés in various locations.
