Dining with Michelangelo and Raphael

The Italian Renaissance master painters provide ambience to one of six tents on the Boston campus that have undergone a total makeover. Instead of bland white walls, each tent has been outfitted with a different theme. “The whole idea is to have the tents be very relaxing, very welcoming, and to attract the community to enjoy them,” says Joseph E. Aoun, president of Northeastern.

COVID-19 Testing

Testing Dashboard

Holiday Travel – Returning to Campus

Upon return to campus, all students must:

  • Complete a COVID-19 test at the Cabot Testing Center on arrival and quarantine until their first negative test result. Students must stay in their room except to pick up food, get testing or medical care, or use shared hall bathrooms or showers.
  • Wait for a second negative test to resume in-person classes.

The safest option for all is to forego travel at this time. If you must travel, we strongly recommend finishing your courses and exams remotely. Your faculty will fully support you as you finish the term.
