Bay State College's COVID-19 Preparedness

A Fall Trimester that is both safe and productive.

  • All classes will be taught in a hybrid format: in-person & online.
  • To ensure social distancing, in-person class sizes will be reduced and public space capacity will be limited.
  • Classrooms will be sanitized after each period.
  • Hand-sanitizer stations are now available throughout all campus buildings.

Our Top Priority

The health and safety of the entire Bay State College community is, and always will be, our most important concern. As we fully re-open for Fall trimester, we continue to monitor all available information related to COVID-19 and its potential impact on our community. Our response adheres to guidelines of the Massachusetts Department of Health, the CDC, and the WHO.

We strongly encourage students to pay close attention to all Bay State College communications to assist in a safe and successful return to campus. We will update this page regularly as new information becomes available.

Contact Tracing

Bay State College’s Information Technology Department has upgraded the identification (I.D.) badge system to assist with contact tracing. During the first week of classes, all faculty, staff, and students will be issued a new ID card holder and Bay State College lanyard that will be required to be visibly worn around your neck at ALL times while on campus. In the event that someone on campus tests positive for COVID-19, the new system will allow us to notify any individuals who may have been exposed to the infected individual. We will share more information about this in the week ahead.

Classrooms: Continuous Sanitization

Classes will be scheduled to allow for extensive cleaning and sanitization prior to the start of the next class period. Classroom capacity will be reduced to ensure we adhere to proper social distancing requirements.

Residential Student Housing

The Revolution Hotel, located a short walk from the Back Bay campus, is available for students requiring housing. There will be increased access to single rooms with double rooms serving as our maximum capacity. The hotel has a common area in the lower level where students can adhere to social distancing measures while completing their studies. The hotel has implemented additional cleaning measures to ensure the health and safety of all residents.
