The NHS recommends that new students starting university get the Meningitis ACWY vaccine before leaving for university.
New university students are open to higher risk of Meningitis, especially in the first weeks of term. That's why we encourage everyone to get vaccinated before coming to Royal Holloway.
If you're based in the UK you can receive the vaccine for free from your local GP. If it's not possible to be vaccinated before you arrive please register at our Health Centre when you arrive at Royal Holloway and book in for a vaccination straight away.
