DigiPen Institute of Technology has announced a fall reopening plan, and with it, a new expansion to the campus named The Wing.

The Wing has been under way for the last year, which the school states prioritizes student wellness. The expansion also allows for easier social distancing at DigiPen.

Just 200 feet away from DigiPen’s main campus, in the same industrial lot, the expansion includes the new library, lounge areas, an extra classroom, six collaboration rooms and more multi-function workspaces. The Wing opens for fall semester, located at 9825 Willows Road, Suite 160.

The private Redmond university also released a plan for fall students that offers a choice between online and hybrid courses. Both begin Aug. 31. There’s also a deferment option for new students to begin in Spring 2021 instead. The cost of tuition remains the same with any option.

Students choosing the hybrid model, with on-campus and online classes, where labs and similar courses would be in person and lectures would be online. DigiPen states on it’s website it will provide as much on-campus teaching as safely possible, conforming to state requirements and guidance as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.

For the students choosing online-only, the classes will be taught in line with hybrid courses, and students will be able to interact with the professors and have the same DigiPen education.
