Vaccination Confirmation and Housing

The University of California announced July 15, 2021, that all UC faculty, staff, academic appointees and students will need to be vaccinated against COVID-19, subject to narrow medical exemptions and accommodations based on disability or religious belief.

All students (undergraduate and graduate) must upload proof of vaccination or approved exemption by Thursday, September 9, 2021.

Vaccine confirmation or exemption should be uploaded to the Ashe patient portal. Please do not submit any vaccination information directly to Housing Services. 

For undergraduate students, failure to upload your vaccine confirmation will result in cancellation of your housing contract for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

For the 2021-2022 academic year, all students living on-campus, the Hill, must be fully vaccinated. Students with an approved exemptions will be assigned to the University Apartments. 

We understand some students may not have had access to a World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccine prior to move in. We will have vaccination clinics available. 

Please review additional vaccine and housing FAQs below.

Q: How do I submit my vaccination status or exemption form?
A: Through the Ashe patient portal. Please do not submit any vaccination information directly to Housing Services. 

Q: Will you be placing unvaccinated students with vaccinated students in University Apartments?
A: Yes. Students who prefer to live in University Apartments may be placed with students who have an approved exemption and are not vaccinated.

Q: I do not have access to the vaccine where I live currently, but do want to be vaccinated, will I be able to get it at UCLA?
A: Yes. UCLA will have vaccination sites available when you move in. 

Q: Is there a limit on how many unvaccinated students can live in University Apartments?
A: In partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, UCLA Senior Leadership, and public health experts, Housing may have to limit how many unvaccinated students receive a housing offer. Since they are limited to University Apartments, there may not be sufficient inventory to accept everyone who wants to live in University housing who is unvaccinated.
