Welcome to the Student Health Center
Other Campus Resources
The Student Health Center provides both primary and preventative health care to currently enrolled students who have paid the medical services fee along with their tuition. The payment of the medical fee allows students to schedule appointments with medical providers at no additional cost to them.
The caring staff of licensed medical providers is committed to keeping students healthy and providing for their medical needs. The clinic is open Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Students needing immediate medical attention after hours or on weekends should go to a local physician, urgent care facility, minute clinic, or a hospital emergency room if they have a true emergency.
Note: Students under the age of 18 must have a signed and notarized Consent for Treatment form on file with the Student Health Center in order to receive medical treatment.
Chicken Pox Advisory
Four cases of chickenpox have been diagnosed at the UT Dallas Student Health Center in the last two weeks. This highly contagious virus spreads from person to person by direct contact or through coughing or sneezing.
You are at risk of getting chickenpox if you have not already had the disease or received the Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine. Symptoms include an itchy rash, fever and lack of energy. They are usually fairly mild but may be more severe in infants, adults or people with impaired immune systems. The UT Dallas Student Health Center offers the chicken pox vaccine to currently enrolled students. You may also contact your primary care physician or the Dallas County Health Department to receive the vaccine. Many urgent care facilities also administer the vaccine.
For more information on chickenpox symptoms and precautions, visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website or contact the UT Dallas Student Health Center at 972-883-2747.

Changes for Fall 2014
- Beginning fall, 2014, students who have purchased the UT Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) will no longer be required to make payment at the time they receive services. The Student Health Center will start filing insurance claims directly with Blue Cross Blue Shield on behalf of students who are covered by the plan. Services received at the UT Dallas Student Health Center are 100% covered by the UTD SHIP. Students who have chosen NOT to purchase the UT SHIP will continue to be required to make payment at the time they receive services.
- Thanks to the UTD Student Fee Advisory Committee, 75% of the cost of STD screenings will be supplemented by allocations from the medical services fee. Students who request these screenings and are not covered by the UT Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) will be required to pay only 25% of the cost. Students covered by the UT SHIP will not be required to pay anything since their services are covered by the plan.
- The Student Health Center now offers additional pharmacy services through Arapaho Pharamacy. Prescriptions are delivered to the Student Health Center once a day. For more information please contact the Student Health Center at 972-883-2747.
