Boiler Cold Rush

Boiler Cold Rush is our welcome weekend orientation program for new undergraduate students admitted to Purdue for the Spring semester. Boiler Cold Rush 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. You’ll learn about campus traditions, Purdue culture and University resources. It’s also a great chance to make lasting friendships and learn how to be a successful Boilermaker. This year, Boiler Cold Rush will take place from January 13 – 16, 2021. Students living in University Residences will be able to move in on Monday, January 11 through Wednesday, January 13, before Boiler Cold Rush programming begins on Thursday, January 14.
