A new initiative is encouraging remote workers around the country to ditch their current digs and set up office space on or near Purdue University’s campus in West Lafayette, Ind.
Participants in the program, dubbed Work from Purdue, can access up to $4,000 in relocation funds, a $1,000 dining credit to the university's newly remodeled Atlas Family Marketplace, discounted rates for office space on campus and more, according to a press release.
They may choose to live off-campus or in Purdue’s Discovery Park District, which houses a variety of residences as well as Crave Food Hall, a chef-driven eatery that opened in 2019.
Work from Purdue offers transplants “the energy of a campus with the flexibility of remote work,” according to the release. To take advantage, participants must be employed full time, agree to live in West Lafayette for one year and move to the city from out of state.
The program is led by the Purdue Research Foundation and managed by MakeMyMove, a platform that connects remote workers with relocation incentives.
