Do I have to move my belongings out of my residence hall room? (Added 10/16/20)
Students who choose to leave campus for Thanksgiving and complete B-Term remotely must consolidate their belongings in their residence hall, on their bed. We ask that students do this in case the university has to close before C-Term begins. Students must return their key to Residential Services.
If I complete B Term remotely, will I be reimbursed for two weeks’ housing and dining? (Added 10/16/20)
No, the university remains open and operating, including dining and housing locations. As a result, WPI is not issuing refunds for students who choose to leave campus and complete B-Term remotely. The housing and dining contracts are binding for the full term.
What about my labs for the end of B-Term—how will I finish if I don’t have access to campus? (Added 10/16/20)
Students should speak to their faculty about specific academic activities for B-Term. Such discussions should be factored in to the student’s decisions about Thanksgiving.
I’m working on an IQP or MQP in B-Term: how can I finish if I go home? What about other team members? (Added 10/16/20)
Students should work with their faculty advisors and team members about specific needs and activities. Such discussions should be factored in to the student’s decisions about Thanksgiving.
