My son is opting to stay home and take classes for the fall but would like to dorm in the spring if (fingers crossed) there are more in person classes. Will he lose out on dorming if he isn't there in the fall?

My son completed his housing application. Should he have heard anything yet about his room assigment?
David Urso

What do you mean when you say students are on there own if they move in before Sept 1? Does that mean no scheduled activities? Is the dining hall open?

Framingham State Orientation

Framingham State Orientation
25:22
Kathie- you can find the classes that are offered face-to-face on the www.framingham.edu COVID-19 update page under Fall Semester ribbon. If the course is not on the list, it will be held remotely or totally online.

Framingham State Orientation
27:01
David Urso- there will be some activities during the Black and Gold Beginnings program which will take place during that time frame. There will be a mix of virtual and some face-to-face sessions.

When do the dining halls open?
Framingham State Orientation

Bob Conceison- Multiple offices are looking into scheduling a mix of virtual activities (these will be the majority) and face-to-face meetings. We are already speaking with clubs on how to make things virtual and to work through so many students not being on campus.
Jack and Kate and Caroline
30:25
if you selected a dining plan assuming visitors, can we still change that one?
Framingham State Orientation
31:05
Jack and Kate and Caroline- Yes, you certainly can change the meal plan. You would do that with Student Accounts- studentaccounts@framingham.edu

Mary Ann
40:28
If all classes are online, should they still get a parking pass in case they need to go on campus for anything.
Framingham State Orientation
41:17
Mary Ann- I would recommend getting the parking pass. There is a cost associated, but if the student needs to come, it will make life so much easier.

41:23
Any idea if athletes are housed together?
Shawn
41:42
how will commuters get their school id?
Kathie

Jack and Kate and Caroline- Only if they ask to live together. It is not something that is organized to have teams live together other than by the students requests or selections.
Framingham State Orientation
42:35
Kathie- Yes students can purchase a parking pass if they are not residents.
Kathie

cassiagilroy
46:29
Going off the athlete question if my son requested a roommate (another athlete) and now will be housed in the Suite will the other roommates be athletes? I am assuming that they would have been paired in a double (traditional hall) but will now be in the Suites?

Brendan Connaughton

Ann-Marie Ouellet
01:02:41

Lisa Moriarty
