I am not fully vaccinated and will be living off campus. What should I do once I arrive in Madison from a location outside the United States?

Testing/vaccination guide for international students living off campus during the fall 2021 semester

When you arrive in the U.S., it is recommended you self-quarantine for 7 days and be tested three to five days after travel.  UW–Madison employees and students are eligible to be tested at a UHS testing location.

Family members who are not UW employees/students can be tested at locations offered by Public Health Madison & Dane County or Urgent Care and other medical facilities. It is advised to check websites or call in advance for testing locations and other information. If you have children, check with your child’s pediatrician about testing recommendations.

After quarantining for 7 days, testing negative for COVID-19 and if you are not experiencing any symptoms, you are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19.  Students, employees and family members can get vaccinated thru UHS at no cost. UHS has Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines available.  If you choose to be vaccinated at an off campus provider – please be sure and upload your vaccination information to UHS.
