As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic UMass Lowell has responded to student and family needs by doing the following:
The housing application for academic year 2021-2022 is now available on the Online Housing Portal. We will prioritize students who submit their housing application by May 5. If you would like to live on campus this fall, we strongly encourage you to submit your housing application prior to May 5.
We will be providing single and double occupancy bedrooms in our traditional residence hall spaces. Units that are typically reserved for 4 students (quads) will operate at double occupancy, all other spaces (typical single, double, and triple bedrooms) will be single occupancy. Please see our Residence Hall information for details on specific buildings/unit types.
We will be providing a cohort housing model for students to live together in shared bedrooms within our suite and apartment residences. These spaces will be our typical occupancy which include single, double, and triple occupancy bedrooms. Please see our Residence Hall information for details on specific buildings/unit types.
If you have questions in the meantime, do not hesitate to be in touch – and we thank you for your patience. We’re thrilled that we have been able to house students safely on campus for the past year – we want to keep that going!
No residential guests or visitors are allowed in the residence halls at this time. No access for non-essential staff
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.
Staff from Health Services and Residence Life will provide updates about how we are responding to COVID-19. This session will include information on housing assignments, testing, procedures, and vaccine requirements. We will be able to answer these questions and more during this time together.
Registration required at: Destination UML Events (https://uml.secure.force.com/events#/list?category=Destination%20UML&type=Virtual%20Event)
This event will walk through the housing application process, dates/deadlines, and preferences that students will need to make to complete their housing application. We will end the session with a time for questions from incoming students and families.
Students will be notified via their uml.edu email address if accepted into Living-Learning Community
Students will be able to start the roommate matching process via the online housing portal. Students not planning to live in a suite/apartment or double bedroom are not required to participate in roommate matching
