Galveston Campus Mandatory COVID-19 Student Testing March 24th - 25th     

Texas A&M University at Galveston will be implementing mandatory COVID-19 testing beginning Wednesday, March 24th to help us continue to support as many in-person events and activities as possible, successfully complete the spring semester and protect our community. Mandatory testing will also allow us to expand guidelines regarding on-campus common areas and residence hall guidelines for the remainder of the spring semester. 

All students residing in campus housing, student employees and students attending face-to-face courses should register to test on either Wednesday, March 24 or Thursday, March 25. Testing will be completed on a first-come, first-serve basis at the Sea Aggie Center (Building 3026). 

Students who can document that they tested positive for COVID-19 on or after Jan. 1, 2021 are not required to take a test. Documentation should be submitted to covidinfo@tamug.edu.

We appreciate your support as we continue to move forward. The mandatory testing we conducted when we returned after the winter break identified cases early which aided in preventing on-campus spread. This action, in addition to timely reporting when symptomatic or in close contact with a positive case of COVID-19 and our community mitigation strategies, has been effective. Texas A&M University in College Station announced a similar policy yesterday.

As we continue these practices through the semester and access to vaccines expands throughout our community, we look forward to the resumption of our summer programs and fall semester.
