College Communications Building
“Whether you're visiting your kid or going to watch a football game, this school is just a 15-min Uber ride away or 35-minute T-ride away from home. Parking at Boston College is pricy and limited so it's best recommended to travel by public transit or taking an Uber/Lyft there.”
