Fall 2021 Reopening Plans
We will reopen our campuses for classes, activities, and residential living in Fall 2021. Find the latest information on our Fall 2021 Plan page.

See what life could be like here.

The health and wellbeing of our university community and members of our extended community are always first, so in keeping with federal and state health and safety guidelines related to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), Lesley University has very limited on-campus visits.

If you do join us for an on-campus visit, you'll need to complete this COVID-19 Self-Assessment form prior to your arrival, as well as provide proof of your vaccination against COVID-19.

We encourage you to explore this page and discover all the other ways you can learn more about Lesley virtually. Check out our virtual tour of campus, and see what life here is like. And as always, our dedicated counselors are here to answer your questions about anything and are currently scheduling virtual meetings.
