Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

I am writing to provide you with an important notice of change to Seattle campus operations in response to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Following guidance and recommendations issued by the Seattle & King County Department of Public Health, and to ensure educational continuity, Northeastern is making the following operational changes to the Seattle campus effective Monday, March 9, 2020:

If you have any questions about campus operations, please reach out to me directly.

Faculty should reach out to program directors to plan course delivery. Students with questions should contact WeCare at 617-373-7591 or via email at wecare@northeastern.edu

The university remains in close communication with public health agencies and experts. As conditions change and new public health agency guidance is issued, we will update the campus community accordingly.

In the meantime, I encourage you to continue to check the university’s COVID-19 website for general health information and changes to university programs and policies.  

Thank you for your assistance as we work to ensure business and educational continuity during this challenging time.

Regional Dean and CEO
