Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Mandatory to all On-Campus Housing Residents
Students who are planning to live on campus must be vaccinated or show proof of vaccination against bacterial meningitis 10 days prior to move-in.
The Texas Legislature passed bill SB 819 in 2009 that states as of January 1, 2010, first-time students applying for on-campus housing must be vaccinated against bacterial meningitis. There are exceptions, and in some cases, a state waiver may be completed for those who have personal beliefs regarding the vaccine.
Feel free to visit Student Health Services for an immunizations check (bring your records) or go to the Office of Housing and Residence Life website for more information.
