Q. Will I be required to be immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 to live on campus?
Yes. The California State University, Office of The Chancellor, announced on April 22, 2021, the COVID-19 vaccination requirement upon FDA approval. In this announcement, it was stated that “the universities intend to require faculty, staff, and students who are accessing campus facilities at any university location to be immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This requirement will be conditioned upon full approval of one or more vaccines by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as adequate availability of the fully approved vaccines. This requirement will become effective at the beginning of the fall 2021 term, or upon full FDA approval of the vaccine, whichever occurs later.” This requirement comes directly from the CSU system. To get vaccinated, please book your appointment on our COVID-19 Student Information website or email

Q. Will I be required to participate in COVID-19 testing?
University Housing Services anticipates requiring COVID-19 testing for North Village students not vaccinated. Students will receive a personalized notification via their official Sac State email account regarding scheduled testing timeframes and options for time slot appointments, along with instructions of steps to follow. There will be no direct cost to students participating in the testing at this time. If this changes, students will be notified via Sac State email account.

Q. Will I be required to get the flu vaccination for the 2021-2022 academic year?
Students are strongly encouraged to get the flu vaccination. For more about this, please review the 2021-2022 License Agreement Addendum found on our Housing Policies and Procedures page.

Q. Will, there be housing activities and programs in North Village in the Fall?
Housing will offer a hybrid of in-person and virtual events for students.

Q. For North Village residence halls, what services will be unavailable for the 2021-2022 academic year?
