Welcome to University Health Services

Welcome! All of us at the University Health Services would like to warmly welcome you. I am constantly amazed by the welcoming and supportive environment at the University of Oregon. This is a community dedicated to helping students succeed. In fact, all the work done at UHS is intended to help our community SOAR. We intend for members of our community to be Strong in mind and body, On a path to success, Aspiring to life-long health, and Resilient in the face of challenge. We are experts in college health and work to support students in reaching their optimal physical and mental health, so that they can achieve their full academic and personal potential.

UHS has many opportunities for students to participate in the medical, mental health, and public health services and programs we provide. We invite you to help shape our future! There are many ways students can engage with UHS: consider joining the Student Health Advisory Committee or Student Advisory Board; there are paid student worker and volunteer opportunities to work at UHS, and you may also engage as a peer health facilitator at the Duck Nest. We also invite you to connect with us in less formal ways. Feel free to drop us a note to let us know how we are doing! Our intent is to be student focused and meet your needs.

UHS has a multitude of resources for you. We provide comprehensive services for students. This website will provide you with a lot of information and resources. There are many people at UHS ready and willing to help answer any questions you may have, and also to assist you as you access care. Please reach out to us, we are here for you.
