Rubin Campus Center Open to Students During Heat Wave June 28 to July 1, 2021


Dean of Students

WPI will open the Rubin Campus Center as a cooling center for students during the expected heat wave this week. The building will be open 7:30 am to 10:00 pm Monday through Thursday, June 28 to July 1, for all students who live on and off campus nearby.

As a reminder:

  • Indoors, face coverings are not required for anyone who is fully vaccinated—except when in the Health Services office, in the Student Development and Counseling Center (SDCC), and in WPI-sponsored transportation vehicles; face coverings are required in those offices.
  • If you are partially vaccinated or unvaccinated, you must wear a face covering and keep socially distanced.
  • You are considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after your final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine.
  • All students are required to be vaccinated and provide their vaccination information by August 1.

Extreme heat can cause heatstroke and other health concerns. Learn more, and call Campus Police at 508-831-5555 or dial 911 for medical emergencies.
