University Health Service (UHS)

Feeling Sick – UHS Can Help!

We know it can be difficult to be sick when you are here at school. You have many demands on your time and getting sick just does not fit the plan. The University Health Service (UHS) staff members are here to help you receive the care and attention you need to help you through your illness.

Please consider the University Health Service your source of health care when you are at the UR. You have a primary care provider (PCP) at UHS. We encourage you to schedule appointments with your PCP whenever possible. Visits with the health care professionals at UHS are covered by the mandatory health fee, regardless of your insurance plan. If you need a lab test or procedure done during your visit to UHS, the charge will be submitted to your insurance company.

Here are ways UHS can be helpful when you are sick:
(With illnesses such as mono, the flu, bronchitis, or chicken pox or with recovery from surgery)

The staff members at the University Health Service provide excellent care for students. If you are sick, please call UHS (585-275-2662) to schedule an appointment to be seen by one of our health care providers. Our office in the UHS Building on the River Campus is open 7 days a week during the academic year. Our offices in the Medical Center and at the Eastman School of Music are open weekdays.

We are here to help you stay healthy or return to health if sick. If you have questions about the care and services UHS provides students, please check our web site (, e-mail us (, or call us (585-273-5770). We want to answer any questions you may have.
