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!


Community Garden and Neighborhood Clean-Ups

Northeastern students, led by Community Ambassadors, join neighbors in Mission Hill and Fenway. Residents join in on the clean up alongside students to prep community gardens, clean up residential properties, and lend a helping hand. Click here to sign up to volunteer in a community garden for Summer 2018!

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!

Breakfast Club resumes in Fall 2018!

Off Campus Fest

Off Campus Fest is an event held to introduce students to their off campus neighborhoods. Fun games, raffles, prizes, and sample food from local vendors tell it all at this event. Don’t miss your chance to participate in a fun and informative event as you begin to learn more about your off campus neighborhood.

Neighborhood Nights

Check out the upcoming community events at the  Fenway Community Center and Northeastern Crossing!

Mission Hill Road Race

CA’s volunteer, along with many Northeastern students (and Paws!), to cheer on runners in the Mission Hill Road Race. Learn more about the road race here. Sign up for our newsletter to see how you can get involved in 2018!
