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!


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!

Save the Date! Saturday, April 5th, 2020 (tentative) is our End of the Year Breakfast Club Clean-Up & Celebration!

Regional Co-op Mentor Program

The Northeastern Co-op Mentor program allows alumni and students from around the world to engage and expand their personal network. This program, developed by the Office of Alumni Relations and Off Campus Housing and Support Services, makes it easy for you to make a strong connection with a student in your city. Alumni mentors help co-op students navigate their careers and professional development, potentially transforming their co-op experience, while co-op students get the opportunity to gain valuable expertise and knowledge from alumni who are leaders in their fields. Students and alumni can leverage the robust, global Northeastern network to achieve what’s next.

The program is currently operating in the areas mentioned below, however its scope continues to grow.
