Rendering of new recreation center

$200 Million Athletics Facilities Plan Announced

"Boston College Athletics Director Brad Bates has announced plans for three projects to enhance intercollegiate, intramural and club sports at Boston College:  a recreational center, athletics playing fields, and an athletics field house. 

The initiatives, an investment of approximately $200 million, result from a multi-year assessment and planning effort regarding BC Athletics, as well as focused fundraising with alumni and friends of Boston College. 

The recreational center, a 240,000 square-foot facility that will replace the Flynn Recreation Complex and be located at the site of Edmonds Hall on Thomas More Drive, will benefit all BC students, faculty and staff. Approved by the City of Boston in 2009 as part of the University‚Äôs Institutional Master Plan (IMP), the project will begin this summer after permits have been obtained. The center, made possible by a lead gift from Trustee Margot Connell and her family, will require two years for construction."
