Welcome to Student Health Services!
Student Health Services (SHS) is a department under the Division of Student Affairs. The SHS MISSION is to provide UNF students with quality evidence based health education and medical care to support their wellness, academic performance and retention. SHS VISION: With acceptance and respect for the diversity of our student population, SHS aspires to provide the highest quality healthcare, and the staff will act as public health resources for the campus community.
Please schedule all doctors' appointments in advance by calling: (904) 620-2900.
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.
Reminder Ladies: Women's health annual exam appointments are normally scheduled two weeks in advance. Urgent care for women's health will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
UNF Student Health Services licensed professional healthcare employees are subject to immunity within the scope of their employment with UNF (see Florida Statute 768.28)

What is Title IX?
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. The University of North Florida has a sexual Misconduct Regulation that provides additional information. For more information, please click: https://www.unf.edu/Title_IX
