Coronavirus Update
A Safer-at-Home advisory is currently in effect in Massachusetts. Residence halls remain closed to all but a small group of students. The university’s previously announced policy that “only onsite personnel should report to campus, unless contacted by a supervisor” will remain in effect until the university examines the Governor’s latest guidance and determines the campus’ approach to next steps.
