“In 1947, with its enrollments skyrocketing from 12,000 students to 25,000 students after World War II, Boston University purchased this beautiful hotel—The Charlesgate. It would become the University’s first large residence hall for women and it, along with the soon-to-be-purchased Myles Standish Hall, would mark Boston University’s transition from a commuter campus to a residential campus.”
