Student Health Services
If your program is based at the Storrs campus and you pay the Student Health Services fee, you have access to UConn Student Health Services building for your medical needs. Student Health Services can serve as your primary medical care provider if you are an enrolled student at Storrs. If you are sick and need to see a doctor, we recommend that you go to SHS first, provided you are not facing a medical emergency or need urgent care when SHS is closed. SHS also provides immunizations, medical testing, sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, birth control services and emergency contraception, womenâs health care, and specialized treatment for a range of conditions.
Know U Well is a personalized Nurse Coach Wellness visit that you can take advantage of through SHS, at no extra cost.
Mental Health Services
Counseling and Mental Health Services (CMHS) provides counseling services to support the mental health needs of UConn students. In the United States, it is very common to seek professional care if we are feeling emotional and physical symptoms that may be tied to mental health conditions. If you are unsure if your symptoms could benefit from further counseling, you can visit CMHS during their drop-in hours or schedule an appointment. There are CMHS staff available who speak different languages. CMHS also maintains a crisis line. Visit counseling.uconn.edu for further information.
