Boiler Cold Rush 2023 Program Details

Purdue plans to deliver Boiler Cold Rush this January for all incoming Spring admitted students. Although the purposes of these programs will remain the same, there will be necessary modifications made to support Protect Purdue.

Please visit the Protect Purdue website to learn more about how we are working to keep you safe on campus.

Official Dates

Boiler Cold Rush traditionally takes place the weekend before spring classes begin, and Purdue encourages all incoming students to take part as well as any student new to the residential experience in the spring.

Boiler Cold Rush 2022 has concluded. More information about Boiler Cold Rush 2023 will be announced in the fall.

Program Cost

If you are participating in Boiler Cold Rush in person, your student account will be billed for the in person program fee of $150 for on-campus students (those living with University Residences) and $200 for off-campus students (those not living with University Residences).

The Boiler Cold Rush fee will be posted to student accounts in early January. The student account can be accessed by going to the myPurdue Portal and clicking on the “Bills & Payment” tab.
