Three Things to Know About Visiting JWU This Summer

For those of you still deciding if you’re going to attend JWU this fall, a visit to campus is guaranteed to help you make your decision. Plus, we’ll be here all summer to answer your questions, help you navigate the remaining steps in the admissions process, and prepare you for an amazing college experience! We think you belong here, and you’ll think so too once you set foot on campus. Plan out a whole summer trip when you visit our Providence, Rhode Island campus, or come discover what we love about our Charlotte, North Carolina Campus.

Either way, here’s what you need to know about visiting us this summer.*

What are the requirements to visit JWU?

Providence Campus

The Providence Campus continues to follow the guidance of the CDC and the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH). Fully vaccinated visitors will not be required to wear a mask.

“As of now, families coming from a RIDOH designated red state need to show a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours or documentation of full vaccination,” says Christine Sullivan, the director of admissions visiting programs. “If they are arriving from a state not designated as ‘red’, then nothing is required.”

Charlotte Campus

The Charlotte Campus continues to follow the guidance of the CDC and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS). Fully vaccinated visitors will not be required to wear a mask. Also, tour groups have returned to the normal capacity of up to 30 people.

What will I get to see on campus?

You’ll get to explore all the classrooms, learning labs, creative spaces and even some residence hall rooms — buildings on both campuses have just recently opened back up to tours, allowing visitors to see the actual spaces where they will learn and create! You'll practically have the campus to yourself as many students are remote for summer courses this year.
