Welcome to Residency

Residency Overview

Students and faculty meet five times per semester for four-day residencies. On-site learning during residencies is combined with interactive distance learning, including required synchronous online class sessions, conference calls, readings, team-oriented assignments, and projects with real companies. The registrar’s office will update the course schedule and residency room assignments at least two weeks in advance.

 

Location(s)

Hult International School of Business

1355 Sansome St, San Francisco, CA 94111

Attendance

Attendance at monthly residencies is required. Any student who misses more than one residency class session per term will not qualify to pass the course. Exceptions can only be made in extenuating circumstances. In the case where a student must miss part or all of a residency, the student must inform course faculty prior to the absence. It is up to the student (not faculty) to take responsibility for making up any missed class lectures or materials. Students may ask other class members if they are willing to share notes, slides or assignment details for the day(s) missed.

Residency & COVID-19

After nearly two years, we are excited to be able to come back together for in-person residencies. However, with the Omicron variant spreading rapidly, affecting both vaccinated and unvaccinated populations, we want to ensure we keep our communities near and far healthy and safe.  

As a reminder, here are our COVID-19 guidelines: 

  • We are requiring proof of vaccination & booster for anyone attending in person. 
  • In compliance with San Francisco County requirements, we will also require all community members to wear masks while indoors at residency.  
  • If you are vaccinated and were exposed to COVID-19 in the last 14 days, please be sure to be tested and receive a negative result before attending residency. 

We will be providing color-coded bracelets to all students attending in-person residency. These bracelets will indicate each person’s social distancing preferences, as follows:

  • Red means “Please maintain a six-foot distance.”
  • Yellow indicates “No handshakes, but elbow bumps are allowed.” 
  • Green signifies that handshakes are welcome.

Recycling  

In order to avoid individual misclassification of waste, Hult International Business School decided to invest in manual sorting of waste which takes place on a regular basis at the Hult building (combined with waste from Levi’s). Therefore, waste containers at Hult are all designated as “mixed waste.”
