Residents,

We are more than halfway through the spring semester and we wanted to provide you with some important COVID-19 updates.

UH Vaccine Planning Efforts

TThe Student Health Center is leading the effort to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to UH students and employees who meet state eligibility guidelines. As the University receives more allocations of COVID-19 vaccine, we anticipate appointments will become available to additional faculty, staff and students who meet the state’s eligibility guidelines and choose to receive the vaccine. For more information, review the UH COVID-19 Vaccine Website and the UH Student/Employee Vaccine FAQs.

Free On-Campus Testing Available

The University of Houston is partnering with the well-known testing company Curative to provide free testing on campus; where faculty, students and staff can be tested regardless of whether or not they are displaying symptoms.

By appointment only, the testing service is available at the kiosk in front of the UH Student Health Center South from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Appointments can be made on the UH appointment website.
