WPI has resumed on-campus activities for the 2020-21 academic year and will welcome students back to campus for C-term/spring semester this month. Guided by science, public health recommendations, and our experience with what worked well in the fall, we remain committed to delivering a world-class educational experience for all.

Your bubble is bigger than you think, and the more people you’re in contact with, the more likely the spread of illness. For every positive case that must be isolated, we also see numerous close contacts who must be quarantined—a disruptive multiplying effect that strains campus resources and threatens our ability to return to a less-restrictive status on campus.
Limit your number of close contacts by always keeping 6 feet away from others, avoiding gatherings, and wearing a face covering.
Wearing face coverings, limiting close contacts, using the symptom tracker, staying home when sick—see how WPI students are taking proactive steps to be safe both before and after returning to campus
The health, safety, and well-being of our community must be the highest priority for each of us, and that means taking personal responsibility to keep #WPITogether by staying home if you're sick, wash your hands, cover your face and watch your space.
