Furniture Shoppingfurn
Lease all signed for next year? It's time for 
shopping! Start thinking about the furniture you'll need. Fantasize about the giant TV for your wall. Be a smart spender! Before you buy furniture that won't fit, ask your new landlord or realtor for another showing of your future unit and permission to take measurements. 
IKEA is a great place to get started! Affordable furniture and a wealth of useful accessories and appliances for your new home make a trip to IKEA a no-brainer.
Target at South Bay Plaza is another affordable option. You can even get a 10% student discount when you order online.
Consider your storage needs and avoid chaos on September 1st! Some local storage companies have great student deals! Check here for more information!   
Summer Safety Tips!summer
  • Consult your lease - your landlord may have restrictions on grilling! 
  • Grill in a safe area- free from strong winds that may blow sparks and away from combustibles! 
  • Have a fire extinguisher- it never hurts to be prepared!
  • Depending on your type of grill, Boston has different regulations on where it can be used. Check out the City of Boston website here
Vacation Safety
  • If you'll be away, be sure to lock up your apartment to prevent break-ins- including your windows.
  • Do not leave valuables in plain sight.
  • Even though the sun sets later, stick to well-lit areas when walking. 
  • Keep your neighbors in mind- even though you don't have classes on Friday, always keep your volume at a respectable level.

Whether you realize it or not, what you do and how you act directly impacts the reputation of the Northeastern community.Think about how your decisions can impact you and your individual goals, but also consider how they can impact the reputation of the university that you proudly attend and represent. For questions, email or follow @OSCCR_NU on Twitter.


Consider these tips from NUPD for a safe and happy summer!

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Keep personal items close at hand and out of plain sight.
  • Do not leave an area unsecured, even for a minute. An unattended laptop or smart phone is an invitation.
  • Don't let strangers follow you into buildings. As you enter your apartment, make sure doors close securely behind you.
  • Register laptops and other electronics with STOP THEFT plates, available from NUPD at 716 Columbus Ave.

  • Designate safe riding zone for cyclists;
  • Encourage cars to drive at slower, safer speeds;
  • Encourage cyclists to bicycle respectfully and predictably;
  • Reduce cyclists on the sidewalk;
  • Make pedestrians and vehicles more aware of cyclists.
Boston Bikes is part of Mayor Menino's vision for a vibrant and healthy city that benefits all its citizens. Click here for more information!
Pedal & Parkpedal
Gone are the days of worrying about whether your bike is still where you left it. The MBTA's Pedal & Park program is here! At select "T" stations, bike cages will be installed to accommodate between 50- 200 bikes. These cages are only accessible to Charlie Card or ticket holders to curb bicycle theft. There are also plans to install more bike racks near Green Line surface stops and other stations. Learn more here!

Did you know over 75% of Northeastern students have not used marijuana in the last month?
People frequently overestimate how much alcohol or drugs people use, because it's more noticeable when someone is using than when someone is not.People who do indulge assume that everyone uses the same way they do.Click here for more information from OPEN.
