Here's an overview of what most students need to know about University Health Service, including services offered, clinic hours and how to make appointments.

Girl on steps with ipadUniversity Health Service (UHS) offers services for full-time undergraduate UK students and students who have paid the Health Fee

  • UHS' board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners, counselors and professional staff provide high-quality care. Also, a registered nurse is available for phone consultation about illness, injuries, lab results or other health concerns, and there is an on-call physician available for telephone consultation for urgent situations when UHS is closed.
  • Our services include primary care, gynecology/genitourinary (GYN/GU), nursing and behavioral health and health education services for nutrition, tobacco cessation and sexual health.
  • 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.
