Here are answers to frequently asked questions.

I am staying in on-campus housing. How do I check-in?

You will check in at the Welcome Center on the first floor of Stayer Hall on Boston College’s main campus. The address for Stayer Hall is 70 St Thomas More Rd, Boston, MA 02135. Directions, location, and a campus map can be found on this website

At check-in, you will receive your room assignment, keys, and a keycard, as well as other important information about your accommodations. Residence hall assignments will be in the St. Thomas More Apartments, Rubenstein Hall, or Vanderslice Hall. 

The Welcome Center is open from 7:00AM-1:00AM daily. You can call +1-617-552-0086 to reach the front desk, and they will be able to assist with residence-hall-related issues.  

If you are required to provide an address for where you will be staying while in the United States, please use the official address for Boston College: 140 Commonwealth Avenue, Chestnut Hill, MA, 02467

How do I get to Boston College campus?

From the airport, the trip will take anywhere from 25-60 minutes, depending on the time of day, traffic, and mode of transportation. 

Taxis from Boston Logan airport: 

There is an official taxi stand at each terminal of the airport, where only legitimate and reliable taxis are allowed. Follow the TAXI signs once you leave the secure area to get to the taxi stand.

Price estimate: $50-70 USD

RideShare Apps: 

Another good option is via Uber or Lyft rideshare apps. It is extremely easy to use these from the airport, and they are safe. The pick-up location has now been centralized, and while that makes it very easy to find, it is quite a far walk; follow the purple “Ride Share” signs, and do not order the car until you reach the central pick-up location.

If you are staying in on-campus housing, your initial drop-off location should be Stayer Hall on BC’s Campus in Chestnut Hill, MA. This is where you will check-in.

There is free WiFi at the airport so you can connect to order your ride. 

Price estimate: $45-80 USD
