Keeping Yourself Healthy

Student Health Services

UNC Charlotte Student Health Services, located in Student Health Center, provides primary medical care, disease prevention, health education, wellness promotion, and various specialty services to all registered* UNC Charlotte students.

Student Health Services is staffed by a team of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, radiology technologists, medical lab technicians, health educators, and certified substance abuse counselors.  Their staff is committed to being recognized as student health care specialists by providing individualized health and wellness services to the students at UNC Charlotte.

Health care in the United States is extremely expensive, therefore it is critical that you are covered under a good health insurance plan. You can purchase health insurance from your home country, from a company in the U.S. or from UNC Charlotte. Visit the Student health website for more information on UNC Charlotte health insurance.

*Registered is defined as enrollment in the current semester, or, if seeking services in-between semesters, enrollment in the next scheduled semester and having been enrolled in the preceding semester. Students not enrolled in the current semester but who meet the eligibility requirements stated above must pay the student health fee for the current semester.
