COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements

Special Tips for Out of State and Out of Area Students
There is a mailroom located in most of our residential communities on campus. All student mail, including packages, are delivered to the mailroom in the Area of campus that you will live in. These spaces are limited in size and storage capacity. Therefore it is strongly encouraged that students delay shipping large items so that they arrive after the student reaches campus.
While students are expected to provide their own bed linens and towels, there will be a limited number of these items available on a loaner basis upon request in each Area Office for students unable to travel with these items. Upon purchasing bedding and other linens, these items must be laundered and returned to the Area Office so that they remain available for other students.
