Boilermaker Station Welcome Center

Boilermaker Station Welcome Center functions as the main hub at Purdue for welcoming alumni, students, faculty, staff, guests, friends, and fans, while also serving as the launching point for all admissions tours.

Strategically located in Room 102 of Stewart Center—right in the heart of campus—Boilermaker Station welcomes more than 40,000 visitors every year. While they are here, visitors can:

  • Sit down, relax, and meet up with friends
  • Charge their cellphones
  • Take pictures with interactive Purdue backgrounds
  • Chat with staff from the Purdue for Life Foundation or the Office of Admissions
  • Gather helpful information about current events on campus and other engagement opportunities


Boilermaker Station is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. It is also open for scheduled admissions tours and on home football games. Additional hours for special events will be shared here, on social media, and via email.

On football game days, Boilermaker Station will be open for two hours before kickoff and close 30 minutes before the game begins. Photo opportunities, and light refreshments will be available. Visitors can also learn details about attending Purdue as a student and ways to stay connected, get involved, and give back as members of the Boilermaker family.
