BGR 2021 Program Details

Purdue plans to deliver Boiler Gold Rush (BGR) next Fall as it has for over 25 years. Although the purpose of this program will remain the same, there will be necessary modifications made to support Protect Purdue.

Official Dates

Boiler Gold Rush traditionally takes place the week before Fall classes begin. At this time, we are still finalizing plans for move-in and activities, but expect that BGR will take place the week of August 16-20, 2021.

In order to help ensure a safe environment for all students/families, incoming students will be asked to sign up for a specific day/time slot during which they may move in. Students will have the opportunity to sign up for their time slot late in the summer of 2021. Please continue to monitor this website and your Purdue email for more details on this process.

Move In Details

BGR For Online Students

Students who are a part of the online learner cohorts and participating in the fall semester remotely will have the opportunity to participate in a BGR Online experience. BGR Online will take place during the same time span as the in-person BGR experience.

To participate in the BGR online experience, students will need to register for the program. Registration for all new undergraduate students will open in January.
