Mark Your Calendars: Important Dates
Off-Campus Address Requirement: Please submit right away, deadline is Friday, August 26, 2016
Boston College requires that all undergraduate students living off-campus submit their local (off-campus) address to the University. Students can complete this requirement by visiting the Agora Portal and updating their local address under the "Account/Personal Info" column. Failure to submit an accurate off-campus address may result in a hold being placed on your student account and hinder the University’s ability to find you or your roommates in the case of an emergency. Please submit your local (off-campus) address right away!
Early Class Start Date: Fall 2016 classes begin on Monday, August 29, 2016
Fall 2016 classes begin on Monday, August 29. The date leases historically start in this area is September 1. If students have an early move-in date, we recommend that they check their lease and/or call their landlord or property manager to confirm. If students have a move-in date on or after September 1, we highly recommend they make temporary housing arrangements or negotiate an earlier move-in with their landlord/property manager. Temporary on-campus housing will not be available.
Mandatory Off-Campus Student Meeting: Wednesday, August 31 at 6:00 p.m. in the Robsham Theater

Taste of Off-Campus: Wednesday, September 7 from 5-7pm, Cadigan Lawn (2121 Comm Ave.)
The Taste of Off-Campus is the signature event of the fall semester for many off-campus students.

Held right on Brighton Campus at the the Cadigan Alumni Center lawn, students enjoy free food and drinks, as well as receive great information about life off-campus at BC. Be sure to drop by!
Breakfast Club: Sunday, September 25 at 10:30am, meet in front of Greyclif Hall (2051 Comm Ave.)
Off-campus students are encouraged to participate in the BC Breakfast Club neighborhood cleanup. Volunteers clean up their neighborhood for about 45-60 minutes and are provided with a free breakfast at Eagle's Deli and given a free Breakfast Club t-shirt for their efforts. To participate in the Breakfast Club, simply send an email to email@example.com. The Breakfast Club meets at the same time and location each Sunday of a home football game weekend.
