Rules and guidelines regarding visiting Five College offices and meeting at Five Colleges' 97 Spring Street headquarters.

Visiting Five College Offices

  • If you are visiting one of our offices from a Five College member campus, we will assume that you are following the vaccination and testing guidelines of your campus, and will not require further proof of vaccination or exemption. 
  • If you are not a member of a Five College campus, you will be asked to provide proof of vaccination to be allowed into Five College offices.

Meeting at Our 97 Spring Street Headquarters

These procedures have been developed by Five Colleges after consulting with guidelines issued by our member campuses, the CDC, and the Massachusetts Department of Health.
