Return to Campus


Here's how to access campus for the first time:

As we prepare for many of you to return for in-person classes in March, we have created an online Return to Campus Checklist to help you keep track of the steps necessary to access campus this spring. They are listed on the checklist and as follows:

  1. Let us know via the checklist if you intend to attend classes in person, your arrival date, and where you’ll be living this semester.
  2. Visit MIT Medical trailer or Johnson Athletic Center to get your first COVID-19 test. New students who arrive in the area are required to be tested upon arrival. See the COVID Apps site for the latest information on testing times. If you arrive outside testing hours, you should complete testing as soon as possible the next day.
  3. Quarantine for 7 days. You are expected to self-quarantine for 14 days or until you receive a second negative test at MIT Medical. Your second COVID-19 test must take place a minimum of 7 days after your first test. 
  4. After your quarantine period, return to MIT Medical for your second COVID-19 test. This testing protocol must be complete before attending the required Return to Campus Tour or attending class in person.
  5. If you are an incoming student, pick up your MIT ID at the Atlas Center.
  6. If you are living on campus, complete MIT residential life training and review the Return to Campus Agreement.
  7. Read and sign the updated MIT Sloan COVID-19 Community Agreement (available via the checklist).
  8. Attend a Spring Reboot Mandatory Virtual Program. These were held by academic program the week of February 16. If you missed it, watch the recording here.
  9. Because you were not on campus in the fall, you must complete a required campus safety tour. Sign up here. These will be offered the week of February 22. You must complete your quarantine and have your results from a second negative test before taking a tour. 
  10. Join MIT Sloan’s COVID-19 Slack channel if you haven’t done so already. This, along with your program newsletter, will be a great source of information and the primary venue for asking questions about campus operations this spring.
