Campus Experience

At Flatiron School, community is at the heart of what we do. Our classes are currently being taught online and our in-person experiences on campus are created for community — meet people outside of your cohort and begin to build your network.

Connect. Learn. Build community.

As long as Flatiron School has existed, we’ve understood the value of community, connection, and learning together. When our students talk about their experiences at Flatiron School, they boast about the life-long friendships and supportive community that helps them succeed in their new career path. It’s part of what truly sets us apart from other bootcamps. 

It’s been a challenging year and connection has never been more important, and we are excited to make it possible for you to build community safely on campus. Our classes are currently meeting online, but we invite you to our campus for optional experiences like community and networking.

What happens on campus?

From growing your network in the tech industry to connecting with guest speakers and building lasting relationships, our campuses are designed to drive your success in tech. Campus is what you make it. 

While members of your cohorts may live in different states, maybe the person studying next to you is a few weeks ahead in their program and can help you diagnose your bug — or become your future cofounder.  

This is the power of connecting on campus. Who knows who you might meet or what you could build! 

Some of our favorite things to do on campus: 

  • Begin to build your professional network with on-campus networking events

  • Attend an event or listen to a guest speaker

  • Meet students from other disciplines to get feedback on your projects

  • Find a quiet space to work on your projects

  • Huddle up in a corner to watch lectures away from the distractions of home

  • Co-learning. It’s like co-working for when you’re learning. Put your head down and focus, then take a coffee break with someone else to chat it out when you get stumped on a project.

There was such a strong community aspect with my cohort and we still text each other today and hang out. It was such a special, curated group of people who cared.

Flatiron School opened me up to a community in tech. My biggest support system both then and now has been, plain and simple, community. Whether that community is women in tech, lesbians in tech, blockchain, and crypto women, I find my biggest support in meaningful relationships with peers and mentors.

Frequently asked questions about returning to campus

When can I access campus?

Our spaces will be open to students during typical business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 6 PM.

Will other students from my cohort also be on campus?

Some of your cohort members may choose to use our campus spaces, but others may not, or may even be located elsewhere in the country. Our campus spaces will be a great place to network with students in other cohorts or other programs within Flatiron School.

What instructional support can I receive on campus?

Currently, all of our program instruction is delivered online. We have event staff on campus, but do not currently have academic support on campus. 

Where can I find information about COVID precautions being taken on site?

We’ll keep this page up-to-date with current protocols in place for each campus.

Will I be required to attend campus at some point if I’m already enrolled in one of the programs?

Participation in campus activities is completely optional for students in the Live/Flex programs.
