ReEntry Purdue amplifies the on campus experience with events, performance and activity spaces. 

ReEntry Purdue Atmosphere

This year, student life on campus has looked different. We all miss football games, the Purdue "All-American" Marching Band, hanging out on Memorial Mall, intramural sports, outdoor concerts, career fairs and so much more.

ReEntry Purdue Atmosphere is an intentional plan to amplify the residential student experience on campus with new and existing event, performance and activity spaces—all with smart social distancing strategies. ReEntry events and spaces work to help foster the campus activities we all miss.

NEW ReEntry Purdue Atmosphere "ChillZone" for Purdue Students

Beginning Tuesday Jan. 19th: The ChillZone at 3rd & Jischke (in front of KRACH) is a safe, outdoor social space for all Boilermakers to meet, mingle, and make friends. Adirondack chairs and firepits (with cantina lighting arriving soon) provide a great place to "chill" with your friends, old and new. Challenge your friends at foosball or billiards on the outdoor game tables. Check-out gaming equipment at the KRACH front desk; Purdue ID or Driver's License required. Firepits will be operated from 5:30-11:30p daily.

It's great to have you back on campus, Boilermakers!
