Welcome to University Health Services

Dear University of Oregon students,

Whether you are here for your first term or you are a returning Duck, we are excited to welcome you to University Health Services (UHS).

UHS provides comprehensive health care, right on campus. We are a nationally accredited, multi-specialty healthcare organization with more than 150 staff whose primary focus is the health and well-being of UO students. UHS has an integrated approach that provides medical services, mental health services, and public health programming for all enrolled students. The UHS building, newly renovated in 2020, provides state-of-the-art care with cutting edge diagnostic and supportive medical equipment. Services include medical care, psychiatry, counseling services, a pharmacy, physical therapy services, a dental clinic, well-being programming and much more.

UHS bills health insurance for medical and psychiatric care, pharmacy, physical therapy and dental. All programming and services provided by Counseling Services and Public Health are available at no charge for students because they are covered by the student health fee.

Medical Services provides primary care, acute care, sports medicine, and specialty care (including psychiatry, endocrinology, and gynecology). Within those main services lines, you will find teams who provide support for nearly all your medical needs, including continuity care for pre-existing medical conditions, sexual health services, transgender care, vaccines, laboratory and x-ray support. We also have a dental clinic, physical therapy services, a pharmacy, and much more.

Counseling Services offers individual and group therapy for a wide range of concerns, including but not limited to: academic stress, relationships, depression, anxiety, eating concerns, and drug and alcohol issues. Additional services include case management, referrals, and educational workshops and consultative services for family, friends, and faculty and staff members needing guidance when concerned about a student.

Note that the new Mental Health Care Coordination Services team provides direct access to mental health services for any student who feels a need for support. Students may drop in anytime UHS is open. No appointment is required. This team will offer urgent mental health evaluations, medication management support, urgent therapy support, intake to UHS mental health services, and will assist with transition of care for ongoing mental health care needs.

Public Health at UHS provides large-scale, campus-wide programming to students to improve the health and well-being of the campus population, generally through peer-led health and well-being programming. The Public Health team monitors immunization compliance, supports students with communicable diseases, and provides evidence-informed programming related to mental, physical, and sexual well-being into communities and through the Duck Nest Wellness Center, located on the ground floor of the EMU. The Public Health team and UHS in general provide many opportunities for student employment and leadership, both paid and volunteer.

Again, we welcome you to UHS! You can reach us 24/7 for medical and mental health support, as both the main number (541-346-2770) and Counseling Services’ number (541-346-3227) roll over when UHS is closed.  Come see us at UHS—we provide care, right on campus!
