The two-year residential college division of Boston College will be named Messina College, after the first Jesuit school founded in Sicily in 1548. It will offer an associate degree program for 100 students annually beginning in the 2024–2025 academic year, with the goal of preparing students for continued studies in a bachelor’s degree program or for professional careers.

Messina College will be located on the former Pine Manor College campus in Brookline, and its students will have full access to Boston College’s campus programs and facilities. Successful students will be eligible to apply to transfer to Boston College to complete a bachelor’s degree.
