Residential Life

Approximately 300 students make their homes in one of the College's four residence halls. Located just around the corner from the Public Gardens and Boston Common, students reside in elegant, 1900's "brownstone" townhouses with all the comforts of home. The turn of the century residence halls have modern amenities such as security systems, common areas with refrigerators and microwaves, making the halls a comfortable place to study, relax, or just hang out with friends. While each living area is unique, each fosters an environment that is conducive to learning. Professional staff and student leaders live and work in each residence hall. Recreational activities, leadership opportunities, referrals to support services, and a listening ear are just a few of the benefits of living on campus.

Student Activities

The Office of Student Activities encourages students to be actively engaged and involved on campus by providing opportunities for leadership and involvement that enhance personal, interpersonal, and organizational development. For that purpose, we serve the college community as advisors, administrators, educators, and resources for students and student organizations. boston
