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.
Student Health Services licensed professional healthcare employees are subject
to immunity within the scope of their employment with UNF (see Florida Statute 768.28).

UPDATE ON THE ZIKA VIRUS:
The University of North Florida is committed to the health and safety of its students, faculty and staff and is currently monitoring the Zika outbreak. Zika is a virus spread primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito. The majority of those infected with the virus don't exhibit any symptoms. When symptoms do occur they can include fever, joint pain, rash and conjunctivitis. Generally, becoming infected with Zika will only lead to mild illness, if any at all, and we don't believe it presents great risk or harm to University students. However, Zika has been connected to infections and illness during pregnancy which can result in serious birth defects. It's recommended that women who are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant should postpone travel to affected areas, which currently includes South America, Central America, America Samoa, Samoa and Cape Verde. The list of affected areas is likely to change and all travelers are encouraged to monitor the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website for updates. Students, faculty and staff who have recently traveled to or plan on traveling to these areas are encouraged to contact their health care provider or the University's Student Health Services, as as the International Center. For additional virus information and the most up-to-date reports, visit the CDC website.
The two primary ways to prevent the contraction and spread of the Zika Virus are:
1. Mosquito bite prevention: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/index.html
2. Safe sex practices: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/transmmission/sexual-transmission.html
The Zika Virus Information Hotline for Florida residents and visitors can be reached at (855) 622-6735 and additional information can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/zika/index.html
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: http://www.unf.edu/eod/Title_IX.aspx
