• Student health

    University Health Service (UHS) offers services for full-time undergraduate UK students and students who have paid the Health Fee. We offer primary care, women’s health, nursing and behavioral health services as well as health education services for nutrition, tobacco cessation and sexual health.

    UHS has board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, counselors and professional staff who provide high-quality care to our students. We also have a registered nurse available for phone consultation for illness, injuries, lab results or other health concerns, and an on-call physician available for telephone consultation for urgent situations when UHS is closed.

    Students must make an appointment to be treated at UHS. We do not take walk-ins, so please call or schedule an appointment online in advance. Students can usually be seen the same day or the next day.

    While the Health Fee does not include dental care, the UK College of Dentistry is piloting a no-cost dental care service for students. Learn more about available services here. Services outside of the pilot options are available on campus both in the Kentucky Clinic and the Dental Science Building. Most dental insurance plans are billable.
