Eleven students were found together in a room in Westin on Wednesday night, the school said. Students and parents said they must be out of the hotel within 24 hours on Friday and have to be tested for Covid-19 in Northeastern.
According to the university, students cannot get a refund for the amount paid for the fall semester. They have the right to challenge dismissal at an expedited hearing, the school said.
Madeleine Estabrook, Senior Vice President of Student Affairs at Northeastern, said, “Northeastern and the community of students, staff and staff take health and safety protocol violations very seriously.” “Cooperation and compliance with public health guidelines is absolutely critical. A negative COVID-19 test is not enough.”
North Eastern told NUin students several times last week that they were told to practice social distancing, avoid crowds, and wear masks when you’re with others.
