Security

Only students and staff are allowed to enter the campus. They must show photo ID cards, pass through a metal detector, and put their bags through an x-ray machine like at the airport. Cars must have BU parking stickers. Only academic staff are allowed to park near the buildings; students and guests park up on the top of the hill. When taxis enter, the passengers must show their ID and random checks are made of the trunks of the cars.
