Student Health Services
Do you have allergies? Wake up with a sore throat? Need advice on contraception? Cut your foot on the way to class? Confused about good nutrition?
At UW Tacoma's new Student Health Services (SHS), created in partnership with Franciscan Medical Group, students can see our on-site medical staff for everything from life's little bumps and bruises to serious talk about living with diabetes.
SHS is staffed and operated by Franciscan Medical Group. Services are provided by a registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) and a licensed practical nurse (LPN). A receptionist will be available during operating hours to make appointments and provide information about SHS.
Student Health and Wellness (SHAW), a department of UW Tacoma's Division of Student Affairs, oversees Student Health Services.
Student Health Services is funded by UW Tacoma student fees. It is for current UW Tacoma students only.
Students may schedule appointments by calling Student Health Services at 253-692-5811 or by stopping by during operating hours. Because of federal privacy laws, appointments may not be made via email or other non-secure electronic media.
