Dress Code

A group of students poses in Boston

For the majority of the Summit, the dress code is business professional and business casual. Comfortable closed-toed shoes are essential for the Summit since delegates will be walking a lot and visiting several hospital labs. When packing, please check online weather conditions for the cities of Boston and Waltham before the Summit to have an accurate idea of what to pack. Delegates are strongly encouraged to pack with layers in mind. While it can be very hot and humid in Boston during the summer months, the weather is unpredictable and many of the Summit venues can be very chilly due to their air conditioning.

Delegates are expected to follow the guidelines, and those not dressed in accord with these standards may be asked to change clothes. Laundry facilities are available in the residence halls and GYS will provide detergent for the delegates upon request.

Appropriate dress is suggested (by day) for the delegates in the Summit Attire Schedule with examples of outfits under Attire Guidelines. Please use the schedule as a resource and note that this is not meant to be a comprehensive list. However, it is expected that good judgment and discretion will be implemented at all times.

The academic rigor of the Summit calls for appropriate attire, but not a large investment on the part of families. Therefore, we encourage families not to spend additional money on clothing. Please contact us if you have specific concerns about the dress code at youthsummit@brandeis.edu.
