    Residence Halls, Meal Plans & Commuter Life

    All first and second year students that live outside of a 30-mile radius of campus are required to live in the residence halls. Those that live within 30 miles are encouraged to do so but also have the option to commute. Learn more about residence life and meal plansComplete the form below as soon as possible. Please note that housing is granted on a space available basis for the fall semester. 

    The Online Housing Intention Form needs to be completed by both residential and commuter students. Since you have not created a housing log in before, start by clicking on the "New to Capital" and enter your name, Capital student ID number, email and birth date.

    Health Forms

    Students entering Capital must return the New Student Health Information and Immunization Form (PDF) before July 1, 2015. 

     The required immunizations are: 

    Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis; within the last ten years
    Measles, Mumps, Rubella: 2 immunizations
    Polio: completed primary series
    Tuberculosis Questionnaire must be completed; if any questions are answered "yes" then a TB skin test will be required

    You are urged to get the required immunizations and completed forms to the Center for Health and Wellness as soon as possible to avoid delaying your start in spring classes. Recommended immunizations are the Hepatitis B (required for nursing students) and Meningitis vaccines.

You can bet you’ll eat great food, meet awesome people, and maybe even get hypnotized! Watch for the full schedule as August gets closer. Classes begin Monday, August 24, 2015.
