MIT is closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 situation and taking action to protect the health and wellbeing of MIT students, faculty, and staff, as well as our neighboring communities. Below are updated policies for undergraduate students that have been guided by MIT Medical and the Institute’s Emergency Management Team, and reviewed by undergraduate Heads of House, DormCon, and other campus partners.
MIT will continue to make policy adjustments and implement additional measures as necessary. Any updates to housing policies will be posted to this webpage.
We're in this together.
MIT encourages students to be attentive to building good communications with others who live near them, who are in the same lab, or with whom they share classes. If students are concerned about the behaviors of other students relative to COVID-19 and health risks, they can report this information through the COVID-19 Public Health Concern Report Form. Concerns about the behaviors of non-student members relative to COVID-19 and health risks may be reported to the MIT Hotline.
COVID-19 Student Policies
Student & Resident Campus Agreement
MIT's mission is to advance knowledge and to educate students in science, technology, and other forms of scholarship. Through a residential experience, the Institute is also committed to the development of a welcoming, safe, and inclusive living and learning community, while providing a safe environment for students during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
COVID-19 student policies have been developed and informed by public health guidance. In this era of COVID-19, each of us has a critical role in supporting the health and wellbeing of the entire MIT community. This shared responsibility is particularly significant for our residential community.
To make an informed decision about returning to MIT for the Spring 2021 semester, it is important that all students who are invited to campus to reside in an MIT residence hall or an FSILG pilot house, or to participate in academic and research activities, read, acknowledge, and agree to abide by the COVID-19 policies, as well as general student policies as outlined in the Mind and Hand Book. It is also important to note that these policies may change as MIT receives updated guidance from city, state, and federal agencies, and it is everyone’s responsibility to stay informed of changes to COVID-19 policies.
This agreement applies to students’ partners and spouses and postdocs and their partners and spouses who live in a MIT residence hall or an FSILG pilot house. Students’ and postdocs’ partners and spouses are also required to review and acknowledge the agreement in COVID Pass.
