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.

Campus health & safety
Effective immediately, full vaccination is required for entrance to any of our Flatiron School locations — including campuses and offices. In addition, masks will be required onsite at all times in any locations where transmission is designated as substantial or high, only removing to eat or drink at a designated distanced desk. Read more about this policy.
Following CDC, federal health and safety guidelines, and guidance from state and local governments, these guidelines and other safety measures are subject to change.
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.
