Connect. Learn. Build community.
As long as Flatiron School has existed, we’ve understood the value of community, connection, and local learning. 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 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. 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.
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!
Our timeline for safely opening campuses
Flatiron School plans to begin opening campuses on July 19, 2021. Students can meet with amazing speakers, grow their networking in the tech community, and build lasting relationships.
While students will not be required to attend or visit our campus spaces (during phase 1 or 2) for successful completion of their program, we are excited to reopen campuses in a tiered approach.
Phase One: Community Programming — Begins July 19, 2021
We’re excited to see our community together in person again! Starting this summer, students can come to campus to connect with fellow students and alumni, find quiet studying space, and attend networking, and workshop events.
Phase Two: Supplemental Instructional Support — Targeted for Fall 2021
Later this year, students in select disciplines will be able to connect with instructional staff on campus for supplemental program help including troubleshooting, office hours, and optional review sessions.
Phase Three: In-Person Live Cohorts — TBD
We’ll begin enrollments for in-person cohorts for select courses. Students who enroll in our in-person programs will be on campus with their instructors and fellow students full-time for 15 weeks. Attendance will be mandatory.
|New York||Phase 1||July 19, 2021*|

*As some locations may require additional regulatory approval before we open our doors, these dates are subject to change.
Campus health & safety
We care about the safety — and success — of our students. With that in mind, we are making necessary requirements and modifications to campus spaces to allow for greater social distancing with enhanced cleaning procedures.
Requirements for anyone on campus*:
Our company policy requires all staff and students on campus to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Everyone on campus must follow CDC guidelines, local guidelines, and Flatiron School policies.
*These requirements, including our campus safety and other policies and our requirements related to COVID-19 vaccinations, are subject to change from time to time.
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.
