All students, whether fully vaccinated or not, will need to do a move-in UHS COVID test prior to getting keys. This will be organized as part of your check-in process.

Vaccinated

Unvaccinated/Not fully vaccinated

  • Self-sequester** for 7 days (regardless of test results).

  • Get vaccinated, unless you have a contraindication. During self-sequester, getting vaccinated is allowed and strongly recommended, as long as the daily campus symptom screener is completed the day of getting a vaccine.

Students not living in on-campus housing


Vaccinated

  • Upload your vaccine records in eTang.
  • If you have not done so before, get ONE COVID test at a campus testing site (this will allow your campus badge to record compliance, required for access to some campus facilities).
