Dear MIT Undergraduate Students and Families,

As a follow-up to Chancellor Barnhart’s recent letters to students and families about the upcoming spring semester, the Institute will be hosting a virtual information session with Institute and student leaders on Wednesday, January 27, regarding MIT’s plans for spring 2021.


Spring 2021 Information Session for Undergraduate Students and Families
Wednesday, January 27, 7:00 – 8:15 p.m. ET

Use this link to take part in the session: http://web.mit.edu/webcast/studentlife/s21/1/

We will post the recording of the session on this site for those unable to attend.

Featuring Cynthia Barnhart, MIT Chancellor; Ian A. Waitz, Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate and Graduate Education; Suzy Nelson, Vice President and Dean for Student Life; student leaders; and other Institute leaders from Housing & Residential Services, MIT Medical, Student Support Services (S3), and more.


Please submit your questions about the spring term in advance. MIT leaders will address the most frequently asked advance questions at the beginning of the program. The audience will be able to submit additional questions and upvote them in real time. We will do our best to address as many questions as possible during the session. Please note that there are several helpful frequently asked questions (FAQs) available for your reference, including Spring 2021 FAQs and MIT Medical’s Covid-19 vaccine FAQ.

Presented in collaboration with the MIT Parents Association and the Undergraduate Association, the information session is open to all undergraduate students and their families, and no RSVP is required.
