Our mission is to respond effectively to the most pressing needs of the University's students. It is consistent with the mission of the Division of Student Affairs by providing comprehensive programs to assist University of North Florida's diverse student population in their achievement of maximum health.
Appointment Policy Update **We are asking that all patients show up at least 10 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to allow time for any paper work that might be required. With more students living on campus, we expect the clinic to be busier than ever. With that in mind, we will no longer be able to offer a 10 minute grace period. If you are not on time for your appointment you will be asked to reschedule and it is quite possible that our schedules might be full and you will have to reschedule for another day. So please keep this in mind and plan accordingly.
When unable to keep an appointment, please be sure to call and cancel. A $10 fee will be imposed for scheduled appointments, which were “no show” and not canceled.
UNF Student Health Services (SHS) clinical areas qualify as “hazardous locations” where children are not permitted. Children are permitted in SHS waiting areas if they are supervised at all times by an adult.
If a patient arrives with a child, s/he will be asked to reschedule their appointment and return without the child or with an adult who can supervise the child in the waiting
area. The patient may be charged a “no show/missed appointment” fee.
Flu on the UNF Campus
Student Health Services and the Duval County Health
Department would like to bring to your attention that there have been several
confirmed cases of Influenza A in our student population. Most of these have
occurred since February 15, 2016. The influenza vaccine (flu shot) this season
seems to be protective. To protect your health and the health of those around
you it is recommended that you receive a flu shot. They are available at your
local pharmacies and physician offices for no charge under almost all insurance
plans and at a cost of approximately $20 if you are uninsured. The Student
Health Clinic has no remaining flu vaccines.
If you develop fever, coughing, congestion and body aches
you may have the flu. Please take precautions to isolate yourself, wear a mask
and use frequent handwashing/sanitizer techniques. The flu is contagious for
one week from onset. There is a prescription anti-viral medication available to
prevent influenza, if exposed, and to treat you if you are infected. Please
discuss with your healthcare provider to determine if this is right for you. If
you become severely ill report to the nearest emergency room or call 911. We
will continue to provide updates on the situation as it changes. As always, we
hope you will experience good health.
Student Health Services licensed professional healthcare employees are subject
to immunity within the scope of their employment with UNF (see Florida Statute 768.28).

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX, as is gender-based bullying and hazing.
