Our more than 4,000 undergrads have plenty to see and do here, from participating in student organizations (we have more than 100) to heading into Boston for restaurants, shopping and simply hanging out with friends.

Getting Involved

Fashion, martial arts, skydiving, table tennis — we’ve got a club for it all here.Our more than 100 student organizations complement classroom experience, offering you the opportunity to meet new people and create, plan and execute events of all sizes.

Living at Bentley

Most of our students choose to live right here on campus. As a first-year, you’ll stay in a traditional, dormitory-style residence hall; later, your options include multiperson suites and one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with bathrooms and kitchenettes. In addition, you can choose from among specialty housing options promoting wellness, global living and women’s leadership. Housing is available for all four years.

Sports are a big part of life at Bentley. On the varsity level, you’ll find more than 20 men’s and women’s teams competing in NCAA Divisions I and II. And if a little friendly competition is what gets your adrenaline pumping, try out one of our intramural or club sports: We have everything from dodgeball to street hockey to Ultimate Frisbee. To learn more about our athletics programs, go to our Bentley Athletics site.




Multipurpose Arena

Our new, state-of-the-art Bentley Arena opened its doors in 2018. More than just a sports venue, it promises to enhance student life and provide a gathering place for the entire Bentley community. Home to the university’s Division I hockey team, the arena will play host to concerts, student events, activities and career fairs and much more. The arena boasts an in-house media control room that acts as a learning lab and is run by Bentley students adding to their classroom experience. 


The Arts

The arts at a business school? Yeah, we do that, too. We have opportunities for creators of all kinds: You can brush up on your guitar skills alongside a visiting musician, get your voice heard on the Bentley radio, let your theatrical side shine in the starring role of a student play, or check out up-and-coming artists in our on-campus gallery.
