Please return your Housing Contract to UMass Lowell Navitas GSSP by the due date. We cannot secure campus accommodation at UMass Lowell for you without this form. Please note that all UMass Lowell Navitas GSSP undergraduate students are required to live on campus during the first year while enrolled in the university pathways program. Please refer to the housing information sheet in your Pre-Arrival Guide to get more information about housing options. Please see the invoice included with your Pre-Arrival Guide.  Graduate students who wish to live off campus must submit a housing waiver.

UMass Lowell Health Forms

Please submit your completed Health Forms, with all required immunizations, to the Health Service Center by the first day of orientation, which is on August 28.  Health forms may be submitted here.  Students in the United States are not allowed to live on-campus or attend classes without these immunizations, so it is important that these are sent to us prior to your arrival on campus. If you have questions about the required immunizations, please feel free to contact Health Services Center via email at, or via phone number at 978-934-4991. Electronic copies of the Health Forms can be downloaded here.

Arrival Forms/ Airport Pickup Request 

As soon as you have booked your flights, please complete our Arrival Form with your travel plans. It is important that you confirm your travel plans as soon as possible, so that we can plan for your arrival to campus. If you require an Airport Pickup from Boston Logan International Airport, you must complete this form.  You will be invoiced at a later date.
