Boston College Residential Community Experience:

We are delighted to provide and continually improve upon an on campus residential experience in which our students are eager to participate.  Here are some of our fundamental goals and hopes for students who live on campus in our residential communities:

  • Provide resources and opportunities for students to explore the multiple dimensions of wellness: social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, financial, vocational/occupational, intellectual and physical.
  • Create a living environment that encourages individual growth, relationship building, social engagement and civility.
  • Foster an environment that empowers students to explore their identities and to develop an awareness, understanding, and appreciation of people whose life experiences are different than their own.
  • Provide students with formational opportunities to reflect and make meaning of their intellectual, social, and spiritual lives guided by the Jesuit Catholic tradition.

Boston College has a variety of residential living communities. Students are invited to explore these living and learning communities and contact our main office at 617-552-3060 with any questions.

Living Learning Communities:

The Office of Residential Life offers eight Living Learning Programs that provide students unique residential opportunities. Each option is based on a particular theme that influences both the planned activities and the interaction among residents. The staff is specially trained to meet the needs of the residents. To learn more, visit our Living Learning Communities page.

Residence Hall Association:

The goal of the RHA is to be an advocate for residents' concerns and provide programming. This is done through the executive board, which includes a President, Vice President, Treasurer/Secretary, and Communications and NRHH Representative. To learn more visit Resident Hall Association.
