C-Term Move-in 2021

Note: January arrival and move-in procedures will differ from procedures students followed in August 2020, so please review this information carefully.

NO ARRIVALS OF ANY KIND outside of these days and times will be permitted. Students should make plans for their own accommodations if they must arrive in Worcester before their move-in day.

Each student will be assigned a move-in day by the Residential Services Office and will need to sign up for an arrival time on their assigned day. Assigned move-in day information will be posted on each residential student’s MyTechFlex dashboard as soon as it’s available.

Residence hall move-in will take place from Thursday, January 21, to Monday, January 25, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST. We strongly urge students to wait until they learn their assigned move-in day before making travel arrangements. If you must book a flight and your arrival in Worcester does not match your assigned move-in day, you will be responsible for your own lodging.

Students should monitor their WPI email and MyTechFlex dashboard on the WPI Hub frequently during winter break for pre-arrival COVID-19 testing instructions. If possible, students should quarantine for 14 days before traveling to Worcester.
