Situated in northwest Boston, Boston College's 33-acre campus straddles the municipalities of Boston and Newton. Boston College (BC) was founded in 1863 as a liberal arts college and preparatory school in Boston's South End. Today, the private Jesuit research university enrolls 9,511 undergraduate and 4,630 graduate students. 

Boston College filed its most recent Institutional Master Plan in 2009. The IMP was amended and renewed in 2013. The IMP includes plans for unifying Boston College's three campuses in Brighton, Chestnut Hill, and Newton. The IMP identifies seventeen construction or renovation projects through 2019, including student residences, a new fine arts "district", athletic facilities, administrative buildings, conference facilities, and parking structures.
