Life in the Halls with students


The residential living environment at Boston College plays an integral role in  students' academic and social lives. The University's residential learning model, with its strong focus on community engagement, encourages students to connect their academic interests to activities outside the classroom.

The Office of Residential Life is committed to the Jesuit ideal of educating the whole person, residential life communities put strong emphasis on creating a living and learning community that fosters personal development and leadership. Students, with support from Residential Life staff, build strong relationships with others from a variety of backgrounds and learn firsthand the benefits of active civic engagement.
