Welcome

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. The caring staff of licensed medical providers is committed to keeping students healthy and providing for their medical needs.

Student Health Alert Update

The Student Health Center is closed until further notice.

If you have the university Student Health Insurance Plan, you have access to a 24/7 nurse line and telehealth appointments by calling 1-800-581-0368.

Statement about Coronavirus

UT Dallas Monitors Coronavirus

No Cases Reported on Campus

The University of Texas at Dallas continues to monitor the outbreak of COVID-19. There are currently no known cases within the UT Dallas community.

Given the global nature of UT Dallas, we want to share important tips on how to stay healthy, and remind you of the health and wellness resources that are available. Please refer to the University’s COVID-19 webpage for more information.

Health and Safety

The health of our campus is very important. As with any communicable illness, we encourage students, faculty and staff to always take precautions to avoid becoming sick. Please review CDC guidelines on preventative measures.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

COVID-19 symptoms may include fever, muscle or body aches, sore throat and cough, fatigue and headaches. If you or anyone you know has traveled to countries designated by CDC as Level 2 or higher — where widespread transmission has occurred (see here for latest list) — or has been in close contact with a traveler to one of these countries and are exhibiting any of these symptoms, we advise that you follow guidelines recommended by the CDC.

The Student Health Center does not have masks available. Currently, the CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

The Student Health Center does not have COVID-19 test kits. If you think you've been exposed to the virus, please follow CDC guidelines .
