North Village Housing Updates

Q. Will I be required to be immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 to live on campus?

Yes, Sacramento State, Office of the President, initially announced on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for “all members of the campus community.” To view the official announcement please visit our Presidential Communications page.

On December 22, 2022, it was announced that the CSU has updated the Vaccination Policy, requiring all students to receive their COVID-19 booster by February 28, 2022 (or six months after receiving their final dose, whichever is later). To view the official communication from President Nelsen, visit the following webpage COVID-19 Booster Email Communication.

Sacramento State vaccine clinic is closed for winter break, but there are many options for you to receive your vaccine or booster. For information on how to schedule an appointment to receive your vaccine or booster, please visit our Get Vaccinated/Boosted resource page.

Q. I will be living in North Village, what must I do in relation to the COVID-19 vaccination requirement prior to move-in?

North Village residents who are fully vaccinated, having received an approved COVID-19 vaccination with the final dose administered, must complete the self-certification form prior to their move-in date, declaring to having received their vaccination and providing all of the requested information. If you do not self-certify you will be treated as a resident who is not fully vaccinated and undergo required testing.

North Village residents who are not fully vaccinated will be permitted to move-in even though they have a pending vaccination appointment or have only received one shot of Pfizer or Moderna. Once fully vaccinated students must complete the self-certification form declaring their vaccination status, no later than Friday, January 28, 2022.

North Village residents who wish to request a medical or religious exemption must complete the self-certification form declaring that they intend to submit a request for an exemption prior to their official move-in date. North Village residents applying for an exemption will be permitted to move-in although they are pending vaccination exemption approval. Those seeking an exemption or have an approved exemption must adhere to campus protocols and testing requirements for unvaccinated students. Residents who self-attest their intent to request an exemption will have 2-3 weeks to clear exemption and receive official approval to remain in on-campus housing.

Q. I am unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, and I test positive for COVID-19 at move-in? What happens?

University Housing Services will accommodate North Village residents who test positive for COVID-19, either in our isolation units at North Village, Hornet Commons, or a local hotel off-campus or direct residents to shelter in place if living in a suite or apartment-style units. UHS will notify Student Health and Counseling, who will contact students to discuss the result and what they will need to do, in addition to self-isolation.

Q. I will be living at Hornet Commons, will I be required to be immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19?
