The buildings

Jackson Hall
Jackson Hall’s unique architecture beautifully reflects its rich history. Once the main academic building of the Venard Maryknoll Preparatory College, Jackson Hall now houses the Murphy Memorial Library, our administrative offices, mail center, computer lab, science lab, and most of our classrooms.  

The Phelps Student Center
Named after long-time BBC trustee Russell Phelps, the Phelps Student Center is a focal point of campus activity. It contains our gymnasium, weight room, cardio room, training room, locker rooms, cafeteria, game room, snack bar, and stage. Many student activities, athletic events, and theatrical productions, not to mention daily chapel services and meals, take place in the student center.

The Recreation Center
The newest building on campus, this 62,000 square foot facility houses a variety of athletic, activity, and lounge areas for our students to enjoy year round. Features include an indoor running track, a climbing wall, cardio and weight rooms, comfortable lounge areas, multiple basketball courts, and much more.

The residence halls
More than four-fifths of our undergraduate students live on campus in BBC’s 12 residence halls. Each three-floor hall is made up of three-bedroom, one-bath suites designed for six students. Buildings include a laundry room, the Resident Director’s apartment, and three lounges where students can enjoy socializing, floor devos, group study sessions, and more.

Buckingham Hall
BBC’s oldest building houses our Music Department. Besides its main classroom and faculty offices, Buckingham boasts several well-equipped practice rooms for pianists and other up and coming musicians.

The Underground Café
Transformed from an old apple and tool storage shed to a trendy coffee shop, the Underground Café is a favorite among BBC students and staff.
