Quiet Move-In Weekend For Boston University Students

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — With strict coronavirus measures in place for anyone on campus, it's a move-in weekend unlike any other for students at Boston University.

Although Commonwealth Avenue is usually bustling with families in moving trucks ahead of the fall semester, it was comparatively quiet this weekend due to COVID-19.

BU freshman Victoria Lee just moved in from New York City, and she told WBZ NewsRadio it felt almost depressing.

"When you envision your move in experience you want to see all the people, everyone moving in with their families on the floor," she said, "but I think there are like two other people on my floor... it's very quiet, it's kind of like a prison."

Lucas has also moved into BU's dorms from Florida, and he said he is the only student on his entire floor right now. Although it's lonely, he said BU is doing a good job of keeping students safe.

"We have to wear masks all the time, even in the bathrooms you have to wear masks in there, unless you're taking a shower," said Lucas. "It's pretty strict."

Each BU student on campus also needs to be tested for COVID-19 every three days.
