The information below reflects plans for A-term. Check back later this fall for updated move-in and residential life information for B-term residents and beyond

Fall 2020 Residential Move-In

Before moving into their residences, all residential students will be required to be tested for COVID-19. Students must have their test results, as well as completed required COVID-19 training before coming to WPI. Students will be assigned a specific date to move in. Please do not make travel arrangements before hearing from the Residential Services Office (RSO). More details and updated policies are available on the RSO moving in page.

Residential Safety Protocols

Frequent cleaning and sanitization procedures of bathrooms, common areas, hallways, and other shared spaces will be in place. Social distancing and the wearing of face coverings are required. Guests and visitors both within and outside of the WPI community will not be permitted in the residence halls.   

In community housing, all lounges and common areas will be closed, and community bathrooms will have occupancy caps and specific instructions for use, cleaning, and schedules, all in adherence with proper social distancing. Students living in apartment-style housing must clean their bathroom and kitchen areas regularly in accordance with posted guidelines. Check out the walkthrough video below for more details:

Residential Dining and Meal Plans 

All on-campus dining locations will utilize a reservation system to better allow social distancing practices. Online ordering and takeout options also will be available. Residential Meal Plans will work in multiple locations across campus. More details about dining (hours, menus, and other adjustments to services) are forthcoming. 

Keeping our WPI family safe and healthy means we’re asking for your pledge to work together to stay together—#WPITogether.  

Additional adjustments to our reopening plan and operations may be needed based on updated guidance and public health trends. We recommend you check back regularly for the latest updates.
