University Health Service


Students should have health insurance to help cover expenses:

In case you are ill or injured:
Students are responsible for payment of costs not covered by the health service fee, including medication, emergency room visits, hospitalizations or ambulance service, and all services outside UHS.  If you do not have insurance, consider purchasing the Domestic Student Health Insurance Plan.

In case you experience a health problem while traveling abroad: 
The University offers a plan that can reduce the impact of health problems on study, work, volunteer and leisure travel while abroad. For more information, see Travel Abroad Health Insurance.
