Visiting the Law School

Our Campus. Your Home Away from Home.

BC Law's campus offers the serenity of rolling hills and tree-lined streets within easy reach of downtown Boston. 

On our 40-acre campus, students enjoy large lecture halls and intimate seminar spaces, support services, ample parking, and dining. Our Law Library provides a peaceful place to study, reserve group study rooms, and access the Student Computing Center, the Daniel R. Coquillette Rare Book Room, and special collections. The many opportunities Boston’s unique neighborhoods provide are only a quick car or public transit ride away.

VISITING CAMPUS

Visiting allows you to meet current students and learn what makes BC Law distinctive. Browse our tour schedule and sign up online.

White-lined spaces denote visitor parking.

Proceed past the booth and turn left. Drive past the Boston College shuttle stop on your left and the East Wing (a brick building) on your right until you reach the back of Stuart House (our main administrative building) on your right. Park only in the spots marked visitor or in white-lined spaces—not in the yellow-lined spaces. If you have not received a parking permit ahead of time, you will need an orange temporary parking pass—please see someone in Admissions or the Dean's Office to receive one, and place it on the dashboard of your car.

You’ll find additional visitor parking past Stuart House and the dormitories (Keyes South and Keyes North) on your right and near our game field, the Quonset Hut, our practice field, Alumni House, and another Boston College shuttle stop.

All Boston College campuses are on the Green Line. If you are taking the Red Line, the Orange Line, the Blue Line, or the Silver Line you’ll need to transfer to the Green Line.

There are two options on the MBTA's Green Line: the B train or the D train.

B train and Newton Campus shuttle

The B train ends at the Boston College T stop on Commonwealth Avenue. Once you get off the train, you will see the St. Ignatius Church directly across the street, on the corner of Fr. Herlihy Drive and Commonwealth Avenue. Walk on Commonwealth Avenue, past the Boston College T stop, the Career Center, and dormitories. The BC shuttle stop is at the Main Gate of the Chestnut Hill Campus. Take the Newton Campus shuttle bus, which goes directly to BC Law.

If you decide to take the B line, allow yourself extra time; it makes many stops.

D train and walking

If you take the D train to the Newton Centre T stop, you can walk 15–20 minutes to the Law School.

After you get off the train, walk up the steps, where you’ll see several shops directly across from you. Cross the street and proceed on Herrick Road until you see the First Baptist Church on one corner and Liberty Travel on the other. Cross the street and make a right onto Centre Street. (Starbucks, CVS, the Newton Centre Playground, the Greek Evangelical Church, and the Trinity Episcopal Church will be on your left.) Continue on Centre Street past Commonwealth Avenue and through the residential area. You’ll see a stone wall, with the BC Law entrance on your left.
