Safety and Security

Safety and security of upmost concern and everyone's responsibility at Boston College. We want to ensure that your room/suite/apartment is as safe as possible.

Please note: Candles, incense, and other sources of open flame; torchière style-halogen lights and lamps; two-prong extension cords; and personal mattresses and foam mattress pads will be confiscated and discarded without compensation to the owner.

Regular health & safety inspections will be conducted in all residential areas to ensure your assignment is safe and secure. To learn more, check our Safety & Security Policies.

Moving and Storage Units

No personal moving companies, door-to-door, or storage units are allowed onto campus. A limited number of carts are available at some residence halls, however it is strongly recommended that you bring your own dolly/cart to facilitate your move.

Boston College has no on-campus storage facility for student belongings, but has contracted Piece by Piece Storage to handle all summer, semester, and year-long storage for students. 

Piece by Piece Storage is the only storage company authorized by Boston College to be on campus. Therefore, any business done with other companies cannot be guaranteed, nor will other companies be permitted to come onto campus during move-in/move-out.
