UMass Lowell Responds

Students Standing Outside

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic UMass Lowell has responded to student and family needs by doing the following:

  1. Reduced room rates to be lower than most state schools
  2. Created new flexible and right-sized meal plans based on student feedback
  3. Developed cohort housing model to allow students flexibility to live with others based on individual comfort level
  4. Enhanced focus on core LLCs in Engineering, Health, and Honors, creating additional opportunities for students to engage in residence

Important Updates

Fall 2021 Housing Application Available

The housing application for academic year 2021-2022 is available on the Online Housing Portal and we encourage students to submit an application if they are interested in campus housing. We are currently at capacity, students applying for housing will be assigned by our housing team as space become available throughout the month of August and September. 

Traditional Residence Hall Housing

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 with the exception of a limited number of rooms in Bourgeois and Fox that will operate at double occupancy. The occupancy for each of these units will be identified as either "Single Occupancy Bedroom" or "Double Occupancy Bedroom" when you view the available rooms on the "Room List" page in the online housing portal. Please see our Residence Hall information for details on specific buildings/unit types.

Suite and Apartment Style Housing

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!
