Lawrence Technological University is dedicated to keeping all students safe and healthy. 

The University requires all new students living in University Housing to be vaccinated and provide vaccination records to the Office of University Housing. Having a record of immunizations will allow University Housing and the University to provide better care for our students in the event of an illness, accident or campus or community outbreak.

Beginning Fall 2021, the University is requiring a COVID-19 vaccination for all students living in University Housing. Students must email a picture of their COVID-19 Vaccination Card to housing@ltu.edu by August 1, 2021, or they will not be allowed to move into University Housing.

For new students starting in Spring 2022, proof of your Covid-19 vaccination must be submitted by December 23, 2021.

Vaccination Exemption Requests

Unfortunately, we are no longer taking exemption requests for Fall 2021.  To submit an exemption request for Spring 2022, please read the information below. Spring exemptions must be submitted by December 1st.

The University will review medical and religious exemption requests to the vaccination requirement and will inform the student if the request is approved or denied.

A medical exemption request requires a letter from a health care provider stating that immunizations are medically contraindicated. A contraindication is a specific situation in which a drug, procedure, or surgery should not be used because it may be harmful to the person. 

A religious exemption request requires a signed written statement from the student describing the reason for the exemption and must include the following:

  • An explanation of the reason for exemption in your own words
  • A description of the religious principle that guides your objection
  • An indication of whether this religious belief constitutes an objection to all immunizations, or only a particular vaccine; if it is not an objection to all immunizations, you must explain the religious bias for not receiving a particular vaccine
  • A statement that the student (or parent/guardian if the student is under 18) is aware they will be prohibited from attending classes and living in University Housing in the case of a vaccine preventable outbreak or exposure. 

All medical or religious exemptions requests should be emailed to housing@ltu.edu

The University does not require a physical examination.
