Medical Care Options
For minor illness, you may go to the UTSA Student Health Services for free medical care. In case of an emergency or if Student Health Services is closed, you may seek treatment at one of the local urgent care facilities or hospitals.
For an injury on campus, please call the UTSA Police at 458-4242 for immediate first aid.
Student Health Services
Student Health Services provides medical care on campus for most illnesses and injuries experienced by college students. UTSA students are eligible for medical services by presenting their student identification card to the staff members at the registration window.
Those needing care for minor conditions may come to the Self-Care Area of the Health Clinic at Recreation and Wellness Center 1.500 or Downtown Buena Vista Building 1.308, where selected nonprescription medicines are available. Treatment at the health clinic is usually without charge.
Laboratory tests and prescribed medications do require a nominal charge.
The maximum prescription benefit is $1,300 per academic year. You must purchase the prescription in full from a pharmacy of your choice. You may then file a claim for reimbursement. To get the most out of your prescription benefit, ask your doctor if generic drugs are available.
Urgent Care Off-Campus
If you need immediate medical attention and Student Health Services is closed, you may visit one of the urgent care centers nearest you. It is important to remember that off-campus referrals are the financial responsibility of the student.
Please visit the Student Health Services website for more urgent care resources.
