Vaccinations and Hygiene Wisconsin law [sec. 36.25(46)] requires students who reside in the Residence Halls to affirm whether they have received vaccination against meningococcal disease and hepatitis B, and to provide the dates of vaccination, if any. While living in the Residence Halls, you are responsible for your own self-care including appropriate personal hygiene, physical and mental health, management of medical conditions or illnesses, and other personal needs. You are expected to utilize the various resources available to you to provide this care for yourself. If you are unable to meet these self-care expectations and/or you cause harm to yourself or others, you may be asked to adhere to an action plan and/or vacate the Residence Halls.
