About University Health Services
at boston college
The mission of University Health Services is to enhance the physical and psychological well being of Boston College students by providing multifaceted health care services in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis (care for the entire person). UHS provides a compassionate safe haven for those in crisis and improves student learning outcomes through modifying health related barriers to learning thus enabling full participation in the college experience.
At Boston College Health Services, we take special care of students. Whether you have a health emergency, a concern about nutrition, or a bad case of flu, you can expect excellent care, dispensed by health professionals who are friendly, concerned and accessible.
Our Health Services are comprehensive. But if you need specialty care, we will provide a referral. Through a special arrangement with Boston College Police, we will also provide transportation to the hospital. We work closely with University Counseling Services to assist students in crisis.
Our Health Services are accessible 24 hours a day. On weekdays by appointment, at our Outpatient Medical Center and, after hours, at our Inpatient Unit, medical help is available at any time of the day or night.
At Boston College, we provide excellent medical care, sensitive to students' needs--and we are there when you need us. When you are far away from home, that's good to know.
