Get Vaccinated UH!

The university added COVID-19 vaccination to its student health clearance requirements on May 17. For the fall semester, unvaccinated students are required to submit a negative COVID-19 test each week if they plan to be on a UH campus. The details of the free student COVID-19 testing program will be announced next week.

According to ​​surveys from this past June, more than 92% of UH students and 95% of UH employees of the 10-campus system have been vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus or plan to be.
