The UH Student Health Center is proud to partner with the students of UH on their healthcare journey. We are partially financed by Student Service fees as well as fees for most services. All currently enrolled students at the University of Houston are eligible for all services of the Student Health Center.
In order to maintain our mission of student healthcare we have recently reviewed our policies and Faculty and Staff are no longer eligible for services at the Student Health Center.
Faculty or Staff should contact their Primary Care Physician or a local area Urgent Care Center for their medical needs
Contact your insurance company for options or go to our After-Hours webpage for local area Convenient or Urgent Care Center.
UH Departments may request that Faculty or Staff receive their Hepatitis B Immunizations, Hepatitis B Titers, TB Skin Test and QuantiFeron (QFT) test. The charges for these services will be billed directly to the department.
A UH Department Business Administrator may request these services by completing a Request for Student Health Center Services Form prior to an appointment being scheduled. Once the Student Health Center has received this form, our office will process the service agreement for the department’s Business Administrator’s approval.
Once approved, the Faculty and Staff member can then schedule an appointment for services after the agreement has been approved.
The Business Office for the Student Health Center will process a Journal Entry using the department’s cost center once services have been rendered.
The Campus Pharmacy is available to UH Students, Faculty and Staff.
Payment is required at the time of service. The UH Campus Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans for prescription coverage. Many insurance companies provide a special card for pharmacy use to be presented at the time of service. Contact your carrier or we can assist in verifying your coverage.
The UH Health Center DOES NOT treat Worker’s Compensation injuries or illnesses for UH students, employees or employees of other organizations.
Information about how to seek medical treatment or to report a Worker’s Compensation injury/illness can be found at the UH Risk Management Website.
Responding to ON-CAMPUS medical emergencies involving employees, students, or visitors: Faculty, Staff, and Students need to be aware of medical emergency conditions requiring immediate attention. These would include, but are not limited to:
- Chest Pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Symptoms of stroke
- Altered mental status
- Loss of consciousness
- Overdose-accidental or intentional
- Major trauma-including head trauma with loss of consciousness or altered mental status, and injuries involving more than one body part
- Severe allergic reactions with facial swelling and difficulty breathing
- Severe, intractable pain
In each of the above medical emergency conditions, immediately call 9-1-1 and notify the University of Houston Police at 713-743-3333 (or dial 9-1-1 from a campus phone) and report the nature and severity of the medical problem and the location of the individual needing emergency medical care. If possible, someone should stay with the individual until the University Police officer or EMT arrives. Do not move the individual unless there is an immediate threat to life (i.e. fire, dangerous fumes)
Notifying the University Health Center or transporting the individual experiencing the medical emergency conditions to the Health Center instead of immediately calling 9-1-1 or notifying University Police is not an appropriate, life-saving response. The Health Center is neither staffed nor supplied with medications or devices to administer Advanced Life Support.
