OPEN’s Frisky Husky program delivers free external condoms, internal condoms, oral dams, and water-based lubricant right to your mailbox!

Frisky Husky orders are now open for the Spring 2024 semester. Click here to place an order here.

 If you need sexual health or other wellness supplies, please visit the Wellness Vending Machine in the Marino Center Atrium.

Program goals:

  • Promote use of barrier methods (condoms and oral dams) during sexual activity
  • Reduce STI transmission rates and increase STI testing rates
  • Promote affirmative consent and boundary setting during sexual activity

 

Frisky Husky is currently limited to Northeastern students living in university housing, including students living in residence halls and Northeastern leased properties. Students may order up to 6 times during the semester. Students can expect to receive their order within 7-10 business days, and you will receive an email notification that your order is ready for pickup in your assigned mailroom.

All Northeastern students can also stop by the UHCS waiting room on the first floor of the Forsyth Building to take free external condoms. Click here to see UHCS hours and location. Students not eligible for the program are encouraged to check out our list of locations to get sexual health supplies in the Boston area.
