Yawkey Center for Student Services

The Yawkey Center for Student Services at Boston University unites six formerly scattered academic advising programs for undergraduate students into a single facility: The CAS Center for Writing, Academic Advising, Pre-Professional Advising, Student Programs & Leadership, the Center for Career Development, and the Educational Resource Center occupy the upper floors, with study and gathering space flanked by a dining hall below.

Marciano Commons—anchoring dining operations on East Campus—replaced three undersized and outdated dining locations. The dining component has eleven different food concepts.

The Center for Student Services is an East Campus destination, creating synergies of support and increasing visibility for these important student services. The Center is also certified LEED Gold by the US Green Building Council.

In 2014, President Robert A. Brown announced that BU’s Center for Student Services, which opened in 2012 at 100 Bay State Road, would bear the name Yawkey Center, for the former Red Sox owners and Boston philanthropists whose foundation has given $10 million to launch a nonprofit internship program at the University.
