Office of Events and Summer Programs

The Summer Programs Information Desk is located on the first floor of Coles Tower. The desk is open 7 am to 9 pm, 7 days a week, during the summer. Please visit us if you have questions or concerns while on campus. We want to make your stay at Bowdoin as pleasant as possible.


Contrary to popular notion, you CAN get there from here. Brunswick has plenty to offer for a quick diversion -- great restaurants, record and CD stores, two movie theaters, art galleries, golf courses, bowling alleys and more. Midcoast Maine offers outlet shopping in Freeport and great seacoast beaches. Portland, a vibrant city with a small-town feel, has museums to explore, Old Port shops to browse, and concerts, clubs and pubs to check out. And a couple of hours in a car will put you in Boston, Acadia National Park, or some of Maine's best recreational areas.
