WPI is driven by science in our plans to welcome our community back to campus, engineering academics, research, projects, work life, residential life, dining, clubs and activities, athletics, and events in order to reopen in a safety-focused, socially distanced manner. The health, safety, and well-being of our community must be the highest priority for each of us.
Continuing a slow, deliberate, and careful process, the university is phasing researchers and staff back across several pathways; student move-in is scheduled to begin August 23 and classes to start on August 31.
