610 Beacon Street

The renovation of Myles Standish Hall is designed to improve the undergraduate residential life experience for 730 students. Leveraging BU’s previous investment in the Yawkey Center for Student Services at 100 Bay State Road, the goal is to create an East Campus undergraduate community space that activates the Beacon Street streetscape. The University seeks to preserve and modernize the original hotel and adjacent annex buildings. Constructed in 1926, the suite-style hotel has been BU undergraduate housing since 1949. The project will maximize bed count and private bedrooms with an energy efficient, LEED certified design that provides the type of modern amenities and common spaces needed to retain undergraduate students on campus.

The project will be done in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Myles Proper (West Half) May 2016 – August 2017
  • Phase 2: Myles Proper (East Half) May 2017 – August 2018
  • Phase 3: Annex May 2018 – August 2018
