Great Stadium

I am a BC alum and have been here many times. My only issue is that the seats are too close together. I have two sons who are 6'4" and 6'3" and they find the legroom inadequate.

This place is old and not well kept. The concessions are limited in variety. The restrooms are old and worn and there are not enough of them.

My wife and I, accompanied by friends, recently attended a Boston College (BC) football game. Our friends son is a player for BC and we were delighted at his play and their ultimate win. The stadium atmosphere was electric, including the BC band and cheerleaders. The facility is first rate, situated on a very picturesque campus. We participated in tailgate... More

Alumni Stadium is a great venue for football. You get a chance to see National Power-Houses like Clemson, Florida State, and Notre Dame. There is not a bad seat in the stadium, but the best seats are the ones that face away from Boston because you get the great afternoon sun.

The stadium is a relic from the Flutie era when "men were men" and BC was a shinning star in collegiate football. Those days are gone and so is the relevancy of the stadium - a facility built for a capacity that doesn't show up. The seats are small, legroom at a premium, concessions are overpriced and the parking ...... More

Boston College has a long history of fielding a football team that plays a challenging schedule of top ranked opponents. If you haven't had a chance to take in a football game at the Heights, make it a point to do so. There are many Eagle fans that never went to the school but have adopted them as their team.... More

While the stadium has been renovated & updated in recent years, it is still too small (about 41-42,000) and needs a lot of improvements. To say parking is bad is an understatement. there is none for visitors and virtually none for home team fans. Most have to take the "T" and walk 15-20 minutes to get to the stadium or... More

With a free day, we though it might be fun to catch a BC game. My best friend graduated from BC in 2005 and I went up every year on my Spring break to be with her in the city...so it's like my second college home. By happenstance, the University where I'm currently employed was playing BC, so it was... More

We attend football games here every other year when our team comes to town to play Boston College. It's a comfortable stadium, with great food options. There is essentially no parking available, so on game day the college operates a large fleet of school buses to shuttle fans from 3 remote parking areas on the outskirts of the city. It's... More

If this is what I think it is I wish trip advisor would let us put in our own dates. This stadium is, or was, part of Newton High School before the school was divided into north and south back in 1959. The century class was the last one to have a single high school that looked like a college... More
