2023-2024 Academic Catalog

Student Health Center

Medical care is available at the Student Health Center to all full-time and part-time undergraduate, graduate, law, and PA students. During the academic year, the Student Health Center is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, except University holidays. Summer hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday with limited physician hours. The Student Health Center is closed on Fridays during the summer.  Students should call the Student Health Center at (937) 229-3131 to schedule an appointment.  Students may cancel appointments through our portal at myhealth.udayton.edu. In case of emergency, call Public Safety at (937) 229-2121.

Pre-admission physical examinations are not required, but students with chronic health problems are advised to have their physicians send records or recommendations to the medical director. Every student is required to have 2 MMR vaccines after 12 months of age or show evidence of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella.  All students are required to fill out a tuberculosis screening questionnaire. Students may upload their immunization history on the student portal.  Students living in on-campus housing also have specific requirements for meningitis and hepatitis B vaccines, specified by Ohio law.  A link to the health requirement form is located on the Student Health Center website.

Undergraduate, Law, and PA students are eligible for Student Health Center office visits at no extra charge. Other Graduate and IEP students pay a fee for office visits at the Student Health Center. The charge for a physician visit ranges from $65 to $75, depending on the length of the visit and the type of services provided. Charges for medicines dispensed, allergy injections, immunizations, laboratory tests, x-ray examinations, and miscellaneous items apply to ALL STUDENTS.

The University believes it is the responsibility of each student to have health insurance and therefore expects students will have and maintain health insurance for the entire time they are enrolled. Having health insurance protects both the student and the community. International students are required to provide evidence that they have health insurance that will cover them the entire time they are a student at the University of Dayton. The University is not responsible for covering health care costs. All charges incurred at the Student Health Center are posted to UD's Office of Student Accounts. Inquiries regarding bills should be made at the Student Health Center between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. weekdays.  The Student Health Center does not bill outside insurance companies directly. However, students should bring a copy of their health insurance/pharmacy cards to each visit in case outside labs or referrals are necessary.  Itemized statements can be provided upon patient request, but these are not automatic.
