Overview of current guidance during Covid-19 emergency

  • Classes
    • Online instruction will begin for ALL classes on Monday, March 30, and continue for the remainder of the semester.
  • Undergraduate housing
    • Undergraduates should not return to campus after spring break.
  • Graduate housing
    • We strongly encourage all graduate students who are able to leave on-campus housing and move to a less-dense living arrangement to do so as soon as possible. 
  • International travel: MIT-sponsored international travel is suspended for all faculty, students, postdocs, and staff.
  • Domestic and personal travel: We strongly encourage people to postpone all non-essential domestic and personal travel. For public health purposes, we are asking that members of the community register all travel in the confidential MIT travel registry.
  • Meetings
    • Any MIT meeting—research, academic, or administrative—that can be done remotely must be done remotely.
  • Staff
    • All MIT employees who can work from home should make arrangements with their supervisors to do so.
    • For employees whose work cannot be done remotely, we encourage implementation of social distancing and other best practices, and development of individualized workplans that minimize close contact.
