Meningococcal Vaccine

It is a policy of the Board of Regents of the State of Kansas that all incoming students residing in the residence halls be vaccinated for meningitis or sign a waiver refusing the meningitis vaccine.

Every student must submit a meningococcal vaccine documentation form to Lafene Health Center regardless of whether you receive the vaccine. Log in using your eID and password, click on ‟forms” and fill out the vaccination form. You may also access the TB questionnaire on Lafene’s site. All incoming students are required to upload vaccination records and can do so on this site. You may receive the vaccine by making an appointment at Lafene Health Center or with your physician. Failure to submit a meningococcal vaccine documentation form is a violation of your residence hall contract.

Prohibited Network Devices

Certain devices are prohibited on the K-State network due to their potential to cause issues or outages with the network. These issues can range from decreased network performance to complete outages for a building or multiple buildings.
