As student move-in weekend (also fondly known as "Allston Christmas") approaches, the BPD encourages residents and students to review the safety information we have provided for students and residents who may be new to Boston on how to stay safe while living in the city.

The BPD also encourages students and residents to visit the City of Boston Move-In website. It has everything you need to know to help you plan accordingly for your move and travels in and around the city on September 1-4, 2017. Students and others moving into Boston over Labor Day Weekend should be aware that temporary traffic and parking restrictions will be implemented in busy residential areas around the city to help facilitate a smooth moving day for new residents. Temporary traffic changes and detours will be instituted as necessary by the Boston Police Department and the Boston Transportation Department.
Please plan accordingly, be patient, and if you see something, say something--our officers are here to help! Welcome back, students!
