UConn Home Student Health Services

Welcome to Student Health Services!


The University of Connecticut Health Service is a health care facility which is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care Facilities. A wide range of services are offered to students here, including primary health care, acute care (non-life-threatening), counseling and mental health, in-patient care, laboratory, radiology, and pharmacy. Specialized services and programs include a women's clinic, allergy clinic, sports medicine, nutritional counseling, health and wellness education, a cold self-care center, HIV antibody testing, special health clinics, and substance abuse prevention education.

The mission of the University of Connecticut Student Health Services is to promote the lifelong physical and emotional well-being of our students. Our multi-disciplinary team provides high quality, cost-effective Primary Care, Health Promotion and Educational Outreach.

The use of Student Health Services is limited to those students who have paid the Storrs Campus General University Fee. Regional campus students and those enrolled in programs that do not require payment of the Storrs GUF should seek community-based health services.
