Vaccinated room lottery

Residence Life plans to open a specific room lottery for those who are vaccinated and want to live with a roommate who is also vaccinated.

We are not moving anyone who doesn’t self-select into the lottery and choose their own new space.

In order for residents to participate in this lottery they will need to take two steps:

  1. Fill out the Request for a Vaccinated Roommate Form

  2. Upload their COVID-19 vaccination card into their patient portal (pro-tip: this is where your vaccination records are also uploaded). We recommend residents upload these records by July 9, 2021 to allow staff processing time prior to the lottery.

The vaccinated roommate room lottery will be open July 14, 2021 - August 6, 2021, and residents will be invited and added to the lottery once they’ve completed the request form and uploaded their vaccination records.

Please be aware that by submitting a room change request, you agree to the terms outlined in the approval letter. If you fail to meet these requirements, you may be charged $150.00 if you do not complete your move.
