Explore what to expect this fall, including academics and course delivery, student life, living on campus, vaccination requirements, face coverings and other safety measures, and more.

WPI held on-campus classes during the 2020-21 academic year by creating a culture of responsibility, resilience, and collaboration. Now we look ahead to the next academic year and a return to in-person learning, teaching, and working. We are guided—as always—by science and data, and in true WPI fashion, we will be ready to address any challenges that come our way. This website will be updated throughout the summer with any new developments or updates.
