Located six miles from the heart of downtown Boston, Boston College is perfectly situated to allow its students all the benefits of a vibrant city while still maintaining a thriving campus community. While Boston is known for being a very academic city, it is also youthful and energetic. Offering an eclectic mix of old-world charm and modern vitality, Boston allows its college students to take advantage of world-class museums, restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Sports fans definitely have something to cheer about. Boston is home to the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, and the Bruins, and BC's membership in the ACC guarantees college sports fans exciting games in football, basketball, and hockey.
Boston College is a short T-ride away from the city. Students can take the Green Line on Boston’s metro system, known as the “T”. A number of different lines go into the city from BC including: B-Line, located on Comm. Ave. across from St. Ignatius Church; C-Line, located in Cleveland Circle and accessible by BC's shuttle bus; and the D-Line, accessible via BC's shuttle at the Reservoir T stop.
