“To put things in very clear terms: It is our intention to reopen our campuses this fall and offer on-site instruction and a residential experience for our students,” President Joseph Aoun wrote in an open letter to the school community, published Friday. “This is a highly complex endeavor; in fact, even more complicated than the move to remote learning and working we accomplished in March.”

Thousands of students at Northeastern have not been on campus since residence halls emptied out on March 17. Classes switched to online instruction days earlier, on March 12, as the impact of the coronavirus pandemic settled into New England.
