About BC

Burton-Conner is home to over 350 residents during the school year. Burton-Conner is on the west side of the MIT campus, building W51. The dorm consists of nine floors—five on the Burton side, four on the Conner side—each of which has its own unique personality.

New first years, welcome to BC! Learn about our unique floor exploration process.

More about BC

Burton Conner comprises a delicious stew of nine unique floors, each seasoned with its own culture, history, and artistic aesthetic. Also in the mix are a dollop of paint, a handful of quality facilities, and a heaping helping of sharp-minded, warm-hearted people. This mouth-watering milieu can be found simmering in any one of Burton Conner’s well-equipped suite kitchens, or being dished out at one of BC’s dorm-wide events in the Porter Room, the largest indoor activity space north of the Charles and south of Briggs Field.


Burton Conner is known as the social dorm; we work hard, but we also play hard. Some of the things we play include:

  • Djembes

  • A mean guitar

  • Certified club bangers at the annual Dance ‘Til You Drop party!

  • Frisbee

  • Jello wrestling

  • Apple Bake

  • Fire drill

  • Candlestick bowling (a Boston tradition!)

  • Plotting the downfall of capitalism

  • Offering sacrifice to our deity and/or crustacean of choice

  • Settlers of Catan

Every year, hundreds of students choose to make their home in Burton Conner’s colorful halls, and we hope you will too. Come get a taste!
