We invite you to learn more about the residential living experience at Boston College through our website.

Early Arrival Application

The application to request an Early Arrival will open on Monday, July 1 and close on Friday, August 2. To earn up to four free nights of housing, fill out the application for Welcome Wagon! The application is open now, and will close on Friday, July 12 for Leaders and Friday, July 26 for all staff. 

The university housing appeal process is available to students that do not wish to live off-campus because of profound circumstances and are requesting university housing for an additional semester/year outside of their guaranteed housing eligibility. 

Students appealing for university housing must complete the appeal form located on the Agora Portal under My Res Life. Please note that due to a limited number of available beds, the majority of requests for on-campus housing are denied. For more information, click here.

Students living off-campus.

Current and perspective off-campus students can search and post housing and roommate profile listings on our apartment and roommate finder database. This service is free for students, faculty, and staff with active BC usernames.
