The Office of Residence Life works to cultivate an inclusive community that encourages self-awareness and embraces all expression of identities. Our staff are committed to welcoming all our student scholars into our residence halls – including, but not limited to: people of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, genders, gender expressions, ideologies, national origins, races, religions, sexes, sexual orientations, socio-economic statuses, and veteran status.

Important Dates & Deadlines

Important Updates

All Spring Residents

If at all possible, please get a COVID-19 test (and wait for your results) prior to returning to the residence halls for the spring 2022 semester. 

Make sure your health and immunization records are up-to-date and submit the required documents to your health services patient portal prior to your arrival on campus. All newly admitted students must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least two weeks post final dose of the vaccine) prior to coming to campus for classes or move in.

Residential Isolation Plan

With the rapid spread of the COVID-19 omicron variant in Massachusetts and New England, UMass Lowell has updated its isolation protocols for residential students who test positive.
  • All students living in residence halls who test positive for COVID-19 will be expected to isolate off-campus.
  • We have a very limited number of isolation rooms at our Inn & Conference Center (ICC) for residential students unable to isolate off-campus or elsewhere.
  • Should positive cases quickly escalate and exhaust our supply of isolation rooms at the ICC, our vaccination and booster requirements will allow students to isolate in their residence hall rooms (if they are unable to isolate off campus) while following CDC guidance.
See our living on campus guide for all details regarding our isolation plan.
