Living in Boston
lynch school of education
Boston College is only six miles from downtown Boston—one of America's most vital cities; a center of trade and finance, education and research, art and culture. Boston is known for its deeply intellectual community but it's also a city known for a vibrant and exciting nightlife, with some of the world's best restaurants and bars, and centers for music and arts. For information about current news and events in the city, you can start by visiting www.boston.com.
Boston's diverse neighborhoods offer a wide array of housing options. The Office of Off-Campus Housing at Boston College maintains lists of available area rentals, people looking for roommates, and alternatives to getting an apartment (i.e., childcare or elder care in exchange for room and board). The Office of Off-Campus Housing also hosts a housing fair for graduate and law students each summer. It is typically held mid-June and there are opportunities to stay on campus that weekend.
