The first step towards housing on campus is making sure you have completed your application to the University of the Incarnate Word!
After you have been accepted and pay your confirmation fee, you can start your housing application. You can start your housing application online, through our housing portal.
Effective October 1, 2013, a change to Texas State law (SB 62) mandates that all entering students under the age of 22 provide a certificate signed by a health care provider or an official immunization record verifying that a student has been vaccinated against bacterial meningitis, or has received a booster during the five years preceding admission to the University.
An entering student includes:
(1) A new student, including transfer students
(2) A student previously enrolled in any institution of higher education following a break of at least one fall or spring semester.
The vaccine must be received prior to the 10th day before the first day of the semester. The vaccine is available through UIW Student Health Services utilizing the School Health Insurance Plan or for a fee of $145.00. It is also available through your local health department, your Primary Care Physician, HEB, Walgreens, CVS and many other convenient care centers. Pricing will vary and is covered by most private health insurance at city-wide pharmacies.
Students may submit their meningitis vaccination record to Health Services via email at firstname.lastname@example.org ,
by fax: 210-829-3125, or bringing it in person to Health Services.
Download your housing contract, and submit for the academic year to email@example.com
