    Because it holds no more than 400 people, BU Central offers an intimate and casual setting, which many of the city’s clubs and music venues don’t. Read more

    Every fall, we host our Ultraviolet Cook Off philanthropy here--the best way to fix your pie and chili craving while contributing to the Sigma Kappa Foundation and Alzheimer's Disease research!

    BU Central shirts, buttons and gear in general are a must-have on campus. Great campus groups play here, as well as more famous ones. If you're a jazz fan, make sure to visit Jazz Fest once a month!

    Lots of a cappella groups (including us) perform here throughout the year. Be sure to stop by before you graduate.

    Come see us perform here once a semester- the shows are short and sweet! Also, we love Rose!

    The best place to host your student group's event. Just go to the BU Central office located in the bottom of the GSU to schedule a time. There is no charge to host an event at BU Central.

    Somehow I always get into shows here even though I don't go to BU. They have great acts come through!

    All events at BU Central are free with a BU ID. Visit BU Central (in the basement of the GSU) for late night campus entertainment.
