Additional Important Information

Living on Campus

Living on campus is a great way to get to know fellow students, engage in student life, and get the most from your University experience. If you wish to live on campus and have not already informed Texas A&M at Qatar, please submit your information online as soon as possible. Housing is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Arrangements can be made for transportation from the airport to Qatar Foundation Student Housing. Students will be contacted early in the summer to provide their arrival information. Upon arriving, you will have the opportunity to meet other international students. Cultural and social activities and opportunities to go shopping for food and other basic items will be planned to assist you in getting acquainted with Qatar. If you have any questions, email jeffrey.sulik@qatar.tamu.edu

Immunizations

Health and wellness is the matter of obtaining and recording the immunizations and vaccines you have had over the years. Qatar Foundation and Texas A&M University at Qatar respectfully require that you complete the Student Health and Immunization Record. Every incoming and current student who attends a branch affiliate must submit proof of certain vaccinations/immunizations (i.e., copy of childhood or current immunization records) and/or proof of immunity (i.e., copies of the blood titer results) to their respective Counseling and Wellness staff.

This information must be compiled and confirmed by your Health Care Provider in English. If you do not have the documents in English, you may have them translated. Translations of non-English documents must be certified. This policy went into effect 1 August 2009. The required vaccinations are described in the document which is included with this letter (Immunization and Tuberculosis Screening Certificate). You are required to return the appropriate documents before you begin classes at Texas A&M at Qatar. Please submit them by 13 July 2017. You will be blocked from registering for classes until you are in complete compliance with the Qatar Foundation policy.

There are three ways you can return the information to the Counseling and Wellness Program

  1. Bring forms to Suite 053 of the Texas A&M Engineering Building
  2. Scan and email the forms/copies to immunizations@qatar.tamu.edu
  3. Fax the forms and copies to us at +974.4423.0011.
