It is fair to say few historical moments will be as momentous to campus life as the outbreak of COVID-19, a global health crisis that led to a decision not seen at Saint Anselm College since the Spanish Flu in 1918. This site will provide updates and resources relating to the College’s response to COVID-19. 


Saint Anselm College’s decisions in response to the global pandemic are guided by the following core principles:

  • To keep the community safe.
  • To do what is right for our students, their parents and families, faculty, staff, and members of the monastery.
  • To maintain the perpetuity of Saint Anselm College.
