Need a space to participate in an online course?

Try one of our new landing zones.

In addition to the many traditional spaces set up for studying, including lounges and BC libraries, the University has designated more than 350 additional seats around campus specifically for students who need to attend and participate in an online class or the online portion of a hybrid class. These landing zones are set up in a number of clusters around campus, so students should always be able to find one nearby.

  • Stokes Hall South: Eight classrooms—103S, 105S, 107S, 131S, 133S, 203S, 205S, and 207S, totaling 93 seats

  • Stokes Hall North: Three classrooms—117N, 121N, and 217N, totaling 33 seats

  • Fulton Hall: The second-floor Honors Library, as well as four classrooms: 210, 240, 310, and 423, totaling 94 seats.  Fulton’s newest classroom, 260, will also be added to this list later in the fall.

  • McGuinn Hall: Five classrooms—011, 029, 030, 437, and 526, totaling approximately 57 seats

  • O'Neill Library: Two classrooms—247 and 248, totaling approximately 23 seats.

  • Gasson Hall: Gasson Commons, on the first floor across from Gasson 100, 20 seats

In general, these rooms have been set up as classrooms, and signage on or near the doors will indicate that they are to be used only for attending online class sessions, especially during the teaching day (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). After 5:00 p.m., please continue to give priority to any student needing a space to attend an online session. 

We ask that you attend online class sessions from your residence hall room or off-campus apartment whenever possible to leave these spaces available for off-campus students or those with back-to-back classes who can’t make it home in time. If you have concerns about the condition of any of these spaces, or if you wish to alert someone to inappropriate behavior, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students.

Landing Zone Rules

  • Masks must be worn at all times

  • Sign the visitor’s log when you enter the room (for contact tracing purposes)

  • No food or drinks allowed

  • Please do not move the furniture

  • As with any shared space, sanitize your desk and seat before using

  • Headphones must be used. There will be multiple students attending different classes in the same room simultaneously—please be respectful of others, use headphones, and speak at a reasonable volume when interacting with your online class.

New Outdoor Spaces

The recently completed Harrington Athletics Village at Brighton Fields is home to BC’s new baseball field as well as softball and intramural fields for all students to enjoy.
