WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information

What You Need to Know Now

  • All on-campus dining locations will offer takeout options to avoid crowding and allow for effective social distancing.
  • Self-service items like salad bars, soup bars, and self-service silverware will be eliminated.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols will be in place, and hand sanitizer will be available at the entrances of each dining location on campus.

In accordance with local, state, and federal guidelines, as well as input from the WPI Coronavirus Emergency Response Team (CERT), adjustments to all aspects of dining on campus are being made as we continue navigating through this new normal. 

A number of heightened food safety steps, many of which were highlighted above, will be implemented on campus. More details about dining options (additional or adjusted hours, menus, and other services) will be available in August and can be found on dineoncampus.com/wpi.
