The University of Texas at Arlington

Subject: Requirement for Vaccination against Bacterial Meningitis for Students Applying for and Residing in On-Campus Housing

Dear On-Campus Housing Applicant:

A new state law that takes effect January 1, 2010 requires that any first-time students who plan to move into University housing show proof that they have been immunized against bacterial meningitis or meet certain criteria for declining such a vaccination before they can live on campus. The law applies to transfer students and any student enrolled at UT Arlington for the first time.

A summary of University policies related to this law is available below:

Individuals who do not comply with the law and related University policies will not be allowed to move into on-campus housing and may experience financial penalties for failure to comply with their contractual obligations.

Your careful review of this information and your timely cooperation are extremely important. Please contact us if you have any questions upon review.

Best regards,
The Leasing Staff
