Luxury "condo" dorms
This barely four-year-old dorm just might the swankiest apartment BU students will ever live in -- like, even after they graduate. The gleaming, 26-story glass structure offers sweeping views of the Hub, and was described by the Boston Globe as "perhaps the most opulent residence hall to ever grace the local college landscape."
Forget flip-flops and flimsy shower curtains, mini-fridges, and bunk beds, this "dorm" features private bathrooms, walk-in closets, lounges with flatscreens, a soundproof music rehearsal space, and washers/driers that alert students via computer when they're available. Good luck in the real world, kiddos.
