ID Badges and campus access
As we make plans to return to in-person courses for the Spring 2022 term, we would like to remind all students that they are required to have a UTHealth-issued badge before entering any UTHealth building.
Badges for the Houston campus can be obtained at the first floor of the University Center Tower (UCT) - 7000 Fannin St. and must be activated before they can be used. In order for students at the Houston campus to activate their badge, they must email Bonnie Schoenbein their names as its listed on myUTH, along with the letters and numbers located under the black strip on the back of the student ID Badge. Please be sure to include in the email that you are a School of Public Health student.
Students at the Austin, Brownsville, Dallas, El Paso and San Antonio regional campuses should contact their campus coordinator for assistance in obtaining and activating badges at their respective campus.
See here for more information on obtaining and activating an ID badge.
We look forward to seeing you all back on campus for the fall term. Please continue to check your UTHealth email for communication from the School and University. If you have questions or concerns, please email SPHStudentServices@uth.tmc.edu.
