Co-op Resources for Students

Although your co-op coordinator is your main resource in all phases of the co-op cycle, below are links that you may find helpful at any point in the co-op cycle: preparation, activity, or reflection. You may also find the FAQs to be a helpful resource.

    • For out-of-Boston co-ops: resources on housing, roommates, events, etc.

    • If a student is required to have a car (their co-op is outside the lines of public transit), has never had a car on campus previously, and is purchasing an overnight pass for the purpose of their co-op, they should contact their co-op coordinator to apply for a parking discount.
  • Student Employment Office
