The university is strongly committed to providing for your physical and mental health needs. University Health Services provides students with primary health care, health education and disease prevention services. All currently enrolled students are eligible for care at UHS. Most available services are prepaid as part of tuition and fees.
Care providers include physicians, nurses, psychologists and other professional staff. A variety of diagnostic laboratory studies and x-rays are available. Most services are provided on an appointment basis, however, care for urgent or acute problems is always available during the hours the clinics are open. Students should always call (608) 265-5600 for an appointment before coming to the main clinics and be prepared to show a student ID.Immunization requirements and recommendations can be found on the UHS website under the "New Student" link
UHS does not provide ER service
University Health Services is now located at 333 East Campus Mall, the new Student Services Tower in the University Square complex. All medical, counseling, prevention, and pharmacy services are united in the state-of-the-art facility on floors 5 through 8 of the tower.
Garage parking and on-street parking are available in the area, including the garage under University Square, the Lake Street ramp, and the metered Lot 46. Lots of buses stop close by on West Johnson or N. Lake Street, including 2, 3, 4, 6, and 9, and the 85 campus bus (the nearest stop on the 80 is Park and University). Check Madison Metro for a full list of applicable routes.
Most UHS funding comes from tuition and the Student Health Fee, one of the segregated fees paid by all students who are enrolled for course credit. For that reason, there is no charge for most UHS services. To maintain a financial structure that delivers a wide range of services while keeping costs as low as possible, UHS does charge for some products and services, such as most immunizations, third-party physicals, and crutches. Some UHS functions are supported by grant funding. For access to UHS during the summer, you must pay a Summer Health Fee. Click here for details.
