College Admission Officers
Reading BUA Student Applications
Visiting Boston University Academy
We typically host between 65 and 80 visiting college admission officers each fall. Admission representatives meet with interested seniors (and sometimes juniors) in the College Office. If no students are available, one of us will meet with you to learn more about your institution. Please click here to access our calendar of available visit times and to book your appointment.
We are located in the middle of the Boston University campus, immediately next to the George Sherman Union (with a Starbucks, a food court, a convenience store, and ATMs).
Nearby schools that you may consider visiting before or after BUA: Winsor School (Boston), Commonwealth School (Boston), Match Charter School (Boston), Brookline HS (Brookline), BB&N (Cambridge), or Cambridge Rindge & Latin (Cambridge).
Due to the unpredictability of traffic and public transportation, we encourage you to allow a few extra minutes for your travel time to campus.

Parking is available in the Upper Bridge Lot (Lot H), adjacent to the Academy building. The parking lot entrance is on University Road where it intersects with Commonwealth Avenue. We will provide a parking pass for the lot by email in advance of your visit, which will contain a QR code you will scan for entry. If you have any difficulty accessing the lot, please call Rob O’Rourke at 617-353-9031. There are also parking meters along Commonwealth Avenue a block west of our school building.
