Can I attend BosMUN without an advisor?
No. All delegates need to be accompanied by a chaperone who is 21 years old or older. Single delegates must still attend with a chaperone, and all schools who register must bring along an advisor. As BosMUN caters to high school students, this rule includes delegates that may be age 18 or older.
Is staying in the hotel mandatory?
While staying in the hotel is not mandatory, we highly recommend that delegations choose accommodations within the Marriott-Copley. Delegations can register for rooms at a reduced rate through the BosMUN room block, and all conference affairs throughout the weekend will be run in and around the Marriott-Copley. Please note that if you choose to stay outside of the Marriott, your delegation will not be eligible to participate in a midnight crisis committee.

The notepad system will be utilized in crisis committees and a select few crisis-heavy Specialized committees. 2 notebooks will be provided to delegates by BosMUN.
