Mission Statement:

The Boston College Office of Residential Life seeks to create safe, inclusive, and well maintained living communities. We engage our community members in opportunities to develop spiritually, socially, and academically in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition of the University.


Core Values:

  • Community: Nurture a welcoming and supportive environment that encourages individual growth, relationship building, and civility.
  • Inclusivity: Honor the inherent dignity of each member of our community, enabling them to share and grow from each other's unique experiences and backgrounds.
  • Learning: Encourage intellectual inquiry through meaningful interactions, creative collaboration, and thoughtful reflection.
  • Faith and Spirituality: Cultivate spiritual growth and formation informed by the University's Jesuit, Catholic tradition.
  • Care: Embody the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis.
