Not living in a residence hall this year? No problem!

You are still invited to participate in Boiler Gold Rush 2017! We offer the same program to all incoming students, regardless of where they'll be living.

As an off campus participant in BGR, you will be able to meet students that are living both on and off campus during the program. In addition, you will have a team leader who leads your group of 10-15 off campus students, and with those students you will:

  • attend all Boiler Gold Rush events;
  • eat in the dining courts during the BGR program;
  • make tons of new friends; and,
  • have the same fun-filled orientation week!

A large percentage of students living off campus participate in Boiler Gold Rush, so we encourage you to sign up today! To sign up, visit the myPurdue portal and click on Register for Boiler Gold Rush.

Off-campus students will recieve check-in information from the University around mid-summer.
