Myles Standish Hall

Myles Standish Hall, located at 610 Beacon Street, is a suite-style residence hall at the east end of campus in historic Kenmore Square. In 2018, Boston University completed a comprehensive multi-year renovation project on Myles Standish Hall. The newly renovated overnight accommodations are now available for adult summer conference groups.

Most suites are four-person suites, consisting of a mix of single and/or double occupancy bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Each floor has a small common area, and guests can also utilize small meeting rooms, laundry facilities, and vending machines within the residence hall.


Feel free to contact us—our professional staff can help match your event to the perfect facility and arrange all the details.
