Nickerson Field during Commencement

Facilities Management & Planning provides critical logistical and maintenance support for major events at Boston University. Commencement, for example, takes a year of planning and five months of hands-on preparation in partnership with Events & Conferences and every school and college, to accommodate 25,000 attendees and dignitaries. Move-In, when students arrive in the fall, and Move-Out, when hundreds of departing students’ rooms are prepared for the arriving summer students, are two more examples of  major events FMP supports.

We also assist with a variety of departmental events, from meetings to receptions to retirement parties, throughout the year.
