Campus Planning & Operations 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. 

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