The Director of Housing or designee may permit, solely within his/her discretion, students enrolled in continuing education, dual degree programs, or other students with special circumstances to be eligible for on-campus Housing. On-campus Housing may be denied for cause or lack of space. Florida law requires individuals enrolled in a postsecondary educational institution to provide documentation of vaccinations against meningococcal meningitis and hepatitis B unless the person or the person's parent or guardian (if the person is under the age of 18 years old) declines the vaccination by completing a separate waiver for each of these vaccines. Each student must submit his/her vaccination information to University Health Services prior to checking into Housing. Students should visit the University Health Services website for more information: http://www.fiu.edu/~health/immunization/index.html.
