We are excited to welcome you for the Fall 2021 session. The university has recently updated their COVID safety protocols; please read on for details:
Masks strongly recommended: Masks are strongly recommended in all buildings, regardless of your vaccination status. See this chart for additional mask guidance.
COVID testing: The university offers free COVID testing, and we encourage all students to get tested regularly. Visit this website to see testing options and schedule an appointment. Getting tested, even when you feel healthy, helps UT monitor and respond to COVID-19 and contributes significantly to slowing the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Protect Texas Together app: Please download this smartphone app to complete daily symptom checks before reporting to campus. This app also provides contract tracing and helpful links to testing locations on campus.
Vaccinations: If you have not yet been fully vaccinated, free COVID vaccines are available on the UT campus. Visit this website to request a vaccination appointment at UT Health Austin. The vaccine is also offered free of charge at multiple clinics and pharmacies in the Austin area.
