Safe. Healthy. Together.

We are all excited to have our entire community back on our beautiful campus this fall. By maintaining the shared expectation of commitment to one another that saw us successfully through the last academic year together, we can do our best to help Curry stay healthy.

Fall 2021 Return to Campus Highlights:

  • The Curry College campus will be open for living and learning in Fall 2021.
  • Courses will be conducted in person on campus.
  • All members of the Curry community including students, faculty and staff are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, or to have received approval for an exemption from the College, prior to the start of the Fall semester.
  • Commonwealth Coast Conference Athletics will resume full conference and championship competition.

This website will be updated as additional information becomes available. Please note that all plans for Fall 2021 are contingent upon the evolving public health situation. We will be monitoring all guidance from local, state and federal authorities carefully and constantly. Should these plans change, we will notify the Curry community promptly.

Return to Campus Planning

Curry College students returned to residence halls and classrooms on campus for the 2020-2021 academic school year. We are very pleased that the public health situation around COVID-19, particularly the widespread availability of vaccines, now allows us to return to a “new normal” this fall. We will always put our students first, taking precautions to continue to keep you and our campus as safe as possible.
