UTSA Housing Residents, 

Earlier today, President Eighmy announced that UTSA will modify operations for the start of the fall semester and implement a mandatory COVID-19 testing requirement for all students, faculty and staff. Preventative measures such as mandatory testing programs are now more important than ever, with San Antonio’s COVID-19 risk level elevated to severe due to the current Delta variant surge. The Delta variant is extremely contagious and is especially impacting younger and unvaccinated individuals. The mandatory testing program is an important step to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 among the Roadrunner community.
 
As a UTSA Housing resident, you are required to participate in our Welcome Back Testing program during move-in from August 13 to 20. This requirement applies to all residents of Alvarez Hall, Chaparral Village, Chisholm Hall, Guadalupe Hall and Laurel Village, regardless of your vaccination status.  
Testing Location and Process 

Testing will be provided on-site in Brackenridge Lot 5 (BK5) as part of the check-in process during move-in from August 13-20. No appointment is required, and tests will be offered at no cost to students. 
 
If you move into your housing unit outside of the established move-in dates (August 13-20), you must be tested by UT Health Wellness 360 or by the Livingston Med Lab on-campus testing location no later than August 27. Students visiting UT Health Wellness 360 can make an appointment using the MyMed Patient Portal. No appointment is needed for testing at the Livingston Med Lab location. Test results from external COVID-19 testing providers, such as doctor’s offices and pharmacies, will not be accepted for the Welcome Back Testing program. 
Test Results 
Test results are typically available in 24-72 hours and can be accessed online. You will receive instructions detailing how to access your test results via an online portal.
