Fake VCU Housing Application Text (5/11/20)

We received a report from an end-user that received a fake-VCU Housing Application Notice. The text included the following message:

“Important update in your VCU account regarding your housing. Application not received and you may be at risk of off-campus housing. Click the link for more details “

Please be aware that VCU Residential Life and Housing will not communicate via text message. The Housing Office communicates housing status updates through email. If you receive a similar text message, please contact the VCU Information Security Office at infosec <at > vcu [dot] edu.
