A Vibrant Campus at the Heights

One step on campus and it’s clear BC is a special place. From Stokes Hall to the new McMullen Museum of Art, today’s campaign-funded building projects honor the past while redefining the future.
A Vibrant Campus at the Heights

The Boston College campus is one of the world’s most picturesque—and it provides the physical foundation for the University’s distinctive mission to educate the whole person.

Beyond mere bricks and mortar, each project invigorates the University community with a renewed sense of purpose. Campaign gifts to buildings like Stokes Hall help BC attract and retain the best faculty, create physical spaces that promote collaboration between undergraduates and professors, and enable students to reach their potential inside and outside the classroom.

The University’s new residence hall at 2150 Commonwealth Avenue and the McMullen Museum of Art’s move to Brighton Campus are among the latest projects underway thanks to the Light the World campaign.

Similarly, the restoration of Gasson and St. Mary’s Halls, the upgrades to the Merkert Chemistry Center labs, and the renovation of O’Neill Plaza and Gasson Quad were all made possible through campaign funding.

Your support ensures the BC campus continues to grow—and heightens the student experience.
