On the afternoon of December 24, Massachusetts Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders and Secretary of Education Jim Peyser released the following guidance to MA colleges and universities: “All institutions of higher education with residential students, as well as all boarding schools, should refrain from bringing any students back to campus until Monday, January 18, including gradual and scheduled move-ins over the weekend of January 16-17, if necessary. This does not apply to students who are currently residing on campus, or to students who had planned to come back before January 18 and have no other housing option for that time period.”
Mount Holyoke is required to update move-in plans accordingly. Please read our advisory notice for details. Any further updates to the Opening the Gates website will be made during the week of January 4.
