Boston College residence hall communities are nurturing environments rooted in the Jesuit Catholic tradition that emphasizes spiritual, moral, personal, and intellectual growth and development. Students have the unique opportunity to interact with others from differing backgrounds, participate in service and social events, and define their role within the university community.

Students are expected to be proactive members of their residence hall communities and to contribute to the overall college experience of others. Students are responsible for taking ownership in developing a safe and healthy living environment for all community members and must abide by all Residential Life and University policies. Questions about community expectations or residential life policies can be directed to your Resident Director or to the Office of the Dean of Students (617-552-3470).
