Housing and Vaccinations
On-Campus Housing (Residential Living)
When you live on campus at Angelo State University, you meet new people, get involved in student activities and are close to all your classes. And you have plenty of opportunities to study! The Center for International Studies encourages you to apply for a residence hall room for your first semester. It’s best to live on campus until you learn your way around ASU and San Angelo.
Note: Single undergraduate students with less than 60 semester credit hours of college-level work who enroll at ASU and carry a total of 12 or more semester credit hours at ASU and who do not live, or continue to live, at the full-time established residence of their parent(s) are required to reside in university-owned housing. Requests to commute from a parental residence from a distance of more than 100 miles must have approval from the Office of Housing and Residential Programs.
Apply for housing and get more information about ASU’s residence halls on the Housing and Residential Programs website.
Apartments are available within walking distance of the university. These apartments are privately owned and not affiliated with the university in any way. The Center for International Studies can assist you by providing a list of apartments near campus. However, all arrangements for off-campus housing are the responsibility of the student.
The demand for housing in the San Angelo area is high, so securing an apartment can be difficult. If you like the amenities that apartments offer, consider ASU’s Vanderventer Apartments.
Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination
The State of Texas requires that new students or transfer students who plan to live on campus receive a bacterial meningitis vaccination. Some students may have already had the vaccination, but any who have not must get vaccinated at least 10 days prior to the first day of classes.
Please be aware that ASU Housing and Residential Programs will not assign students to rooms in on-campus housing facilities until we receive documentation demonstrating compliance with the Texas state law regarding the meningitis vaccination.
Students are required to present vaccination evidence to the Registrar’s Office.
Your documentation must include the date of your vaccination. Please provide at least one of these acceptable forms of proof of vaccination:
- An official immunization record
- An official school record
- A physician’s note
Students may be exempt from the bacterial meningitis vaccination law under one of the following provisions. You must submit one form of the documentation listed below to be in compliance with the meningitis vaccination law.
- An affidavit or certificate from a physician that states the vaccination would be harmful to the health and well-being of the student.
- A Conscientious Exemption Form from the Texas Department of State Health Services that states that the student is declining the vaccination for reasons of conscience, including a religious belief.
