Living off campus gives us the unique opportunity to get involved in our community and meet neighbors. The Community Ambassadors host events off campus, attend community meetings and gatherings to learn about their neighborhood, and can help you find some of your neighborhood’s hidden gems!

See some of our off campus events below and how you can get involved with us!


Neighbor to Neighbor

Northeastern students, led by Community Ambassadors, join neighbors in Mission Hill, South End/Roxbury, and Fenway. Residents join in on the clean up alongside students to prep community gardens, clean up residential properties, and lend a helping hand. With over 100+ student volunteers, these big projects get done much faster!

Our next Neighbor to Neighbor is scheduled for April 8th, 2017!

Breakfast Club

During the spring and fall we host between 8-10 clean ups in Mission Hill, Fenway and South End/Roxbury neighborhoods. CA’s meet up with students, hand out supplies, and lead the group through the streets to keep our community looking beautiful! After the 1 hour clean up, join your new friends and CAs for a light breakfast at a local coffee shop. Email to sign up for Breakfast Club!

Neighborhood Nights

Our first Neighborhood Night took place at Northeastern Crossing in August 2016! This was a great opportunity for Northeastern University staff, faculty and students to mingle with our residential neighbors and partners. This was followed by Huskygiving at the Fenway Community Center. Our next Neighborhood Night is scheduled for January 24th at Northeastern Crossing.

Mission Hill Road Race
