Boston College provides all first-year students with independent but supported living accommodations in residence halls on either the Newton Campus or Upper Campus in Chestnut Hill. The residence halls are coed; men and women live on alternate floors. Most freshmen live in double rooms, though some singles, triples, and quads are available. View floor plans and room renderings.
An important aspect of your education is decision-making, a process the Jesuit Order calls discernment. Throughout your undergraduate years at Boston College, you can take advantage of retreats and weekend experiences that support your academic, social, and spiritual development. These programs allow you to take a break from campus life and reflect on your college journey, the decisions you face, and how to act on those decisions.
