Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Bentley University continues to closely monitor updates and recommendations about the coronavirus (COVID-19) from the Centers for Disease Control, U.S. State Department, Massachusetts Governor's Office and local Departments of Public Health.

Classes resumed online on March 23 for the remainder of the semester. Students are asked to remain off-campus. For the limited number who will remain on campus, Residential Life is in contact with them to discuss details related to travel, lodging and food service on campus. The university requires that non-emergency personnel remain off campus and work remotely in accordance with the governor’s order.   

The university has set up a phone line dedicated to answering coronavirus-related questions and concerns: (781) 891-2012. You can reach someone on this line from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Outside of those hours, please leave a voicemail and it will be returned within 24 hours. The health and safety of Bentley students, faculty and staff remain the university's top priority.
