FALL 2021 Studio Protocols

Ruggles Studio as the creative and cultural heart of the School of Architecture, we all want safe and equitable access to this shared space. We all commit to respect policies and people.

This document explains specific polices for using the Ruggles Studio in the Fall 2020 semester to be consistent with Northeastern University Policies for safe reopening

This is a dynamic situation, and these policies will evolve, and may change at time. In all events, University Regulations, as well as government guidance and regulation supersede these policies.

Health and Safety

Studio is part of campus, so the campus rules obviously apply.

Basic Safety

  • Get tested and do the daily wellness check
  • Wear a mask. Always.
  • Maintain Distance
    • Do not gather at desks, in circulation or critique spaces
    • Do not exceed stated capacities (e.g. craft area, laser room, model shop)
  • No food or drink in studio


  • Wipe down your desk and chair before and after you use it

Equitable Use

Basically, don’t be a jerk.
