You're a college student and you might not have that much money, or you're really trying to save up. People get it. That's why so many places offer a student discount. Being in a city can be expensive, so make sure you're taking advantage of these discounts while you're still a student. Here are 11 places around Boston University that you should remember to bring your BU ID  with you when you go.


1. Red Sox Tickets

Score $9 standing room tickets at home games with your high school or college student ID. To be eligible you need to sign up here, and provide the name of your school and your expected college graduation year. Most importantly, don't forget to bring your ID to the game.

2. Museum of Fine Arts

The MFA offers free admission to BU students and faculty with a valid student ID through their University Membership Program. For a full list of schools that participate in this program, head to their 'Universities' page

3. Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

As a current student with your BU ID, you can get free general admission to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. You must buy the ticket in person, however.
