Boston Area Model United Nations Conference

a BUIAA Conference 

The premiere crisis conference on the collegiate Model UN circuit, BarMUN is Boston University's annual collegiate Model United Nations conference. The conference is hosted on the Boston University Charles River Campus; situated in the heart of the city, BU is only a 5 minute walk from Fenway Park, and 3 T stops from the Boston Common. BarMUN is a branch of the Boston University International Affairs Association (BUIAA), the largest student group on campus.

In addition to BarMUN, BUIAA hosts a high school level conference in February, BosMUN, an undergraduate international affairs journal, the IR Review, an organization to help introduce international relations to high school students around Boston, Global Civics, and finally Boston University's own travel team. BarMUN XII will not only be a memorable experience for our delegates, but also for the staff helping make this conference come to life.


Our mission statement of "Professionalism, Inspiration, and Passion" dictates our goal to provide a truly unique conference experience for our delegates and staff, from committees to social events to accommodations, with the utmost dedication and passion towards the MUN community.

Committees Offered:




BarMUN’s ECOSOC committees are mid-sized committees that typically deal in a variety of topics from various international organizations.

Specialized committees range in topics on an international scale, as well as a more localized scale. Delegates can expect a heavy crisis aspect, minus the crisis notes, in our specialized committees.

Crisis committees have been the crux of BarMUN from the very beginning. We prioritize a smaller sized crisis committee with heavy involvement from staff and highly engaging topics.
