• All participants living in campus housing and who are age 21 or younger must submit proof of one dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4, such as Menactra or Menveo)* since age 16.
• Participants living on campus who are over age 21 may either submit proof of vaccination since age 16 or submit the Meningococcal Vaccine Waiver. Meningococcal conjugate vaccine is preferred although meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine (MPSV4, such as Menomune) is acceptable. At minimum, serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135 must be covered.
• Participants may waive this requirement only if there is a medical contraindication to vaccination or if religious beliefs prohibit immunization.
If a participant is not covered by health insurance, parent or guardian must provide a statement accepting financial responsibility for emergency care.
Summer Program Assistants act as Residence Life coordinators during Curtis Summerfest. An SPA will be on call 24/7 during your stay at Lenfest Hall. SPAs are selected on the basis of their interpersonal skills and their ability to contribute to life at Lenfest Hall. They are specially trained to solve problems, resolve conflicts, and otherwise serve the needs of residents; their chief concern is the comfort and safety of the residents. They also assist in publicizing and implementing housing policies, enforcing rules, and planning activities.
