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.
Boston College Law School is situated on an idyllic 40-acre campus with new and expanded classrooms, conference space, a state-of-the-art law library, dining facilities, and student space. Downtown Boston is easily accessible by public transportation or car.
Stuart House is BC Law’s main administrative building. Recently renovated, this building houses the Office of the Dean and administrative departments—including Admission & Financial Aid, Diversity & Inclusion, and Academic and Student Services—faculty offices and classrooms; the dining hall and snack bar; offices of the law reviews; and the Henry E. Foley Moot Court Room. Just off Stuart is the Smith Wing, which houses the Center for Experiential Learning.
Stuart House Dining offers a full menu of both freshly prepared and grab-n-go items all day, 7 days a week. Nearby is the “On the Fly” Convenience store and the “Yellow Room” snack bar where many law students eat, socialize, and study.
The East Wing, a multi-use classroom and office building, opened in 1999. The building connects to the Law Library and the Stuart House administrative building and houses our largest classrooms, most faculty offices, and several important resources for students, including the Career Services Office and Career Resource Center; the John J. and Mary Daly Curtin Public Interest Center, a suite of offices for student groups working on public service projects; and conference rooms.
Housed in the East Wing, the Ropes and Gray LLP Conference Center hosts visiting lectures, conferences and symposia, and special events. It consists of several large classrooms and function space. Classes are also held in the space.
The BC Law Library is a dynamic environment for law study, supporting students’ technology needs as well as providing research support and instruction. Students rely on the library’s varied resources, ranging from group study rooms and course reserve books to recreational items such as Frisbees, coloring materials and lawn chairs, as part of their daily routines. Law librarians promote access to over 400 databases, including BloombergLaw, Lexis and Westlaw, to build students’ research skills.
The Daniel R. Coquillette Rare Book Room houses a rich collection of rare law books, focusing on the books that working English and American lawyers in the 16th-19th centuries likely would have owned in their personal libraries. The library strives to make the materials as accessible as possible to the community. Books and manuscripts are integrated into law school classes on a regular basis, and new exhibits are mounted at the beginning of each semester to introduce Rare Book Room visitors to our rare book and manuscript collections.
The Mone Courtyard is the heart of our campus between the Library, East Wing and Stuart House, and the site of many outdoor receptions and informal student gatherings.
